Description
Forever Pink is just that, with strong-colored flowers on a shrub that's wider than it is tall. Shorter than most mophead hydrangeas, this one tops out at 3 ft, but spreads beautifully to 5-6 feet. A great color-maker.

About Hydrangeas: These popular shrubs, also called Hortensia, all have rounded flower clusters that persist through summer and fall. There are several types, since there are several species of the plant the hybridizers work with:
H. macrophylla or French Hydrangeas. These, the most popular, form non-rangy, attractive shrubs about 4 to 6 ft. tall, and are famed for their big, colorful ball-like flowers, usually blue or pink. The popular group here is called Mophead hydrangeas. Artificially shortened versions are sold in pots on Easter and Mothers Day, and the blooms are florist’s favorites, always popular for wedding decorations. In addition to the mopheads (solid ball of flowers), there are also lacecap versions of these hydrangeas. (H. macrophylla is native to the Far East.)
H. arborescens, a US native, includes the widely-planted, Annabelle. Much like the Mopheads, Annabelle is a shorter hydrangea with huge rounded flower clusters in pure white. This is the one famous for flowers so large they often weigh down the branches, needing special support.
H. paniculata, is a larger species, much taller than the Mopheads. The flower clusters are more cone-shaped, rather than round. The plant in this group is more rangy than the shorter types, but can be controlled by pruning. The famous Pee Gee hydrangea, often grown as a small tree is in this group, and was imported from Japan in the late 19th century. There are also newer H. paniculata hybrids, including the beautiful greenish-flowered one called Limelight.
Other Types: There are several other important hydrangeas. The tall native Oakleaf hydrangea (sometimes considered a small tree) is also a variety of the species, H. paniculata.

      Comments about American Meadows Hydrangea macrophylla Forever Pink - Plant:

      This plant had everything going against it. I planted it in 100% shade on the side of the house where nothing has ever survived. THEN my dog decided it looked tasty, dug it up, ate part of it, and thrashed some of the roots. Luckily I found it the same day and decided to try re-planting it, with little hope and a tomato cage for protection. AMAZINGLY it has bounced back beautifully! It's the first season, so I don't have any blooms yet obviously. But I am jus so impressed it survived at all! And it's growing nicely.
