There’s a New Star in Town

Joining an already star-studded cast of garden superstars, it’s almost curtain call for Pop Star® Bigleaf Hydrangea – the newest addition to the Endless Summer® Hydrangeas Collection. Introduced by Bailey Innovations™ earlier this year, Loma Vista Nursery has Pop Star hydrangea in production now for Spring 2023 client availability.

Loma Vista Nursery is a wholesale grower of perennial plants, trees and shrubs. We grow healthy plants for Midwest independent garden centers, landscape contractors and wholesale distributors. See our plant catalog for more information about Pop Star hydrangea and contact us to pre order. Among other hydrangeas in the Endless Summer collection, Loma Vista Nursery also grows BloomStruck®, The Original® and Summer Crush®.

Why is garden paparazzi going crazy for the new Pop Star hydrangea? Because it brings glamor and vitality to gardens, landscapes, containers and even indoors as cut flowers. Plan to include Pop Star hydrangea at retail and include it in landscape designs for trending 2023 gardens.

Compact Lacecap Hydrangea

Pop Star hydrangea is a small, bud-hardy lacecap shrub that comes in blue and pink. It gives encore bloom performances from early summer to middle fall. In fact, Pop Star steals the flower show with consistent reblooms two to four weeks earlier than similar varieties.

Through years of North American trials, this genetically compact hydrangea maintained its small stature and tight, strong habit. At maturity, Pop Star hydrangea is 11/2 feet tall and has a height of 3 feet at flowering. It has a similar spread.

Versatile in Landscape Designs

This hydrangea’s small stature makes it an eye-catching front-of-the-border plant or specimen hedge along wooden fences. Its mounded habit softens the edges of sidewalks and patios with year-after-year color. Use Pop Star hydrangea as a thriller in container designs for decks, patios or porches.

Pop Star hydrangea is easy on landscape maintenance crews and homeowners will appreciate that it requires almost no care. Apply a time-release fertilizer once during summer before August. Pruning is no-fuss as this hydrangea blooms on new wood. Either prune it back in fall or remove winter-weary tips in the spring.

Heat and Cold Tolerant

Pop Star hydrangea is grown for success in USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 9. Thick green leaves protect buds into Zone 4. They support heat tolerance in warmer climates to Zone 9. Provide shrubs with one inch of moisture weekly, either applied or through rainfall.

Place this hydrangea where it can get morning sun and dappled shade in the afternoon. In the landscape, add color pizzazz and textural interest by layering taller perennial plants and shrubs behind Pop Star hydrangea. Good companions include astilbe, coneflower, hibiscus or butterfly bush. Lacecap hydrangeas are friendly to bees, butterflies and insect pollinators.

We are currently taking orders for spring 2023 retail sales and landscape projects. Take a look at our online catalog and become a customer. Your Loma Vista Nursery sales representative will be glad to help you.
