Did you Know?

Remontant hydrangeas have two distinct periods of growth that produce flowers. The first flush of growth occurs on “old wood,” or last year’s stems. The second flush begins in late summer or early autumn on “new wood,” the newest stems. In the southeastern United States, these hydrangeas experience their first flush in late May or early June and their second sometime in September.
