Hydrangea macrophylla 'Eternity'

Bigleaf Hydrangea 'Eternity', Mophead Hydrangea 'Eternity', Hydrangea macrophylla 'Youmetwo', Hydrangea macrophylla 'RIE2', You-Me Series


Hydrangea macrophylla 'Eternity' features spectacular, starry, rich pink, double flowers adorned with a creamy center. When an individual flower first opens, it resembles a lacecap hydrangea with large sterile flowers radiating on the edge. However, unlike the lacecap hydrangea, the inflorescence eventually fills out completely creating both a particularly pretty mophead effect with double flowers. The flower heads are either pink (acidic soil) or blue (alkaline soil). Blooming from mid spring to early fall, the attractive blossoms are borne on sturdy upright stems, guaranteeing a better display. Compact, this elegant hydrangea makes a fantastic specimen plant and looks lovely in containers. It can be grown for use as an indoor floral potted plant and is ideal for small gardens!

  • This deciduous shrub enjoys a round, bushy habit, typically growing up to 3-4 ft. tall (90-120 cm) and 2-3 ft. wide (60-90 cm)
  • A part shade lover, it is best grown in rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Tolerant of sun if the soil remains moist.
  • No serious pest or disease issues. Watch for aphids, capsid bug, hydrangea scale and vine weevil.
  • Perfect from foundation plantings to container plantings. Massed in a sheltered location or as an accent plant.
  • To change the color of your Hydrangea, add aluminum sulfate to the soil to make the flowers bluer or add lime to the soil to make them pinker. Treatment should occur ahead of time (late fall or early spring)
  • Spent flowers should be regularly deadheaded.
  • This beautiful deciduous shrub should be pruned after flowering by cutting back the stems to a pair of healthy buds. Prune out weak or winter-damaged stems in early spring.
