Monrovia Seaside Serenade® collections:

"If you think you love hydrangeas now, just wait until you experience the exceptional performance and long-lasting blooms of a Seaside Serenade® hydrangea. The collection includes 9 jaw-dropping hydrangeas with big, showy, and long-lasting blooms — among many other highlights.

These new-and- improved hydrangeas have a more compact, bushy growth habit, sturdier stems, thicker leaves, returning blooms, and longer-lasting flowers than other hydrangea varieties. They are great on their own or in mass in formal gardens or as a focal point in containers. And their cut blooms are lovely in a vase." Monrovia
