What kind of flowers can I plant in front of my Blue Endless Summer Hydrangea?
Hardiness Zone: 5b
Regina from Kane, PA
I scoured the web and looked through several of my garden reference books to find some suggestions for flowers that pair well with Endless Summer hydrangeas. Their deep green foliage and shrub-like form combine well with a variety of different plants.
For an emphasis on contrasting foliage, pair your Endless Summer with these shade perennials:
For pairings that emphasize a contrast in form, try these:
Some low growing annuals to try include Lobelia 'Royal Jewels' or 'Waterfall Azure Mist', Petunia 'Plush Deep Pink' or 'Tidal Wave Silver', Begonia 'Baby Wings White' or "Braveheart Rose Bicolor', Calibrachoa 'Superbells Coral' or Cabaret White', and Diascia 'Diamonte Coral Rose'.
Azaleas, Bleeding Heart (Dicentra), Camellias, Hellebores, and ferns would also make wonderful companions.

There's a pretty little day lily that has yellow flowers or you could try cone flower. They're different colors but the regular pink/purplish ones would be nice. They self seed so once planted they'll come back. If you don't want flowers you could use mondo grass. We called it monkey grass in Mississippi. Oregonians (and most of the rest of the world!) calls it mondo.
