Go Back Hydrangea Endless Summer Light-O-Day

Hydrangea macrophylla Endless Summer 'Light O Day'
Butterfly IconDeer Resistant Icon

Plant Type: Deciduous Shrubs

A variegated lace cap mutation of the widely popular re-blooming hydrangea Endless Summer. Compared to other variegated hydrangeas, it has a more reliable bloom, better hardiness and at least as good creamy white variegation. Don’t expect ‘Light O’ Day’ to re-bloom like Endless Summer, but any bloom from a variegated hydrangea in the shade is a blessing indeed. And you will certainly get more blooms from Light O’ Day than from any other variegated hydrangea grown in similar conditions. For maximum bloom production, choose a spot that is lightly shaded, dabbled shade or shaded in the afternoon with morning sun. The inner blooms are either pink or blue, depending on the soil acidity. Surrounding the inner blooms are bright white flowers. Light O’ Day will reach about four feet tall and four feet wide. It prefers moist soil (not wet) in a place with afternoon shade and morning sun. Light O’ Day makes an excellent choice for the woodland garden or along the north side of the house or garage.
