Hydrangea macrophylla Game Changer 'Blue' has large soft blue lacecap flowers blooming earlier and longer than other cultivars.
The Game Changer series are the first day neutral Hydrangea macrophylla. All other cultivars initiate buds only when day length reaches the long summer hours. Without the requirement for this signal, the Game Changers will begin to bloom much earlier in the season with large lacecaps from late spring until fall! Plus they're hardy to zone 5! 'Blue' has lovely sky blue sterile florets around lacy blue fertile florets. Flowers could develop pink tones in alkaline soils. Grows 4 feet tall by 3 feet wide. Very easy care and a vigorous grower.
