I am tired of my mop heads blooming so late with so few
We have "Blushing Bride" and another unnamed "Endless Summer" hydrangea.
For a year or two we were getting a wonderful display of flowers but the past couple of seasons they have been sparse.
I think it is probably due to the fact that old wood gets killed because of the cold winters we sometimes experience and so we wait and wait for the new growth to put out blooms. (And of course this season will likely be a dud given the epic winter of 2014).
Are there any new varieties of macrophylla that are hardier or at the least bloom sooner on new wood? (Smaller size would be great as well).
(As you all know I love my 'Bobo' (hydrangea paniculata) as it blooms only on new wood before mid July).
