The hortensia So Long® Sunny has an original bloom: beautiful, well-rounded inflorescences with curled petals, white with a pink border that's vivid at first, later rose-white. Well-marked as the bloom emerges, the border softens and its colour spreads through the petal once in full flower. In an acid soil containing alumina, So Long® Sunny acquires sky-blue tones. Flowering on the year's fresh wood, it is in fact a remontant variety that resists late frosts. Beginning towards the end of June, it flowers abundantly in July-August and will continue into September and even October. With its compact shape and vigorous stems, it's a fine garden hortensia that can be grown alone, in groups, as a low hedge or in large pots.
The So Long® range, launched by Sapho in 2017, consists of new varieties of remontant hortensias for cool climates. All the varieties in this series have in common an important and high-quality reflowering on the year's fresh wood. See also So Long® Ebony and So Long® Rosy.
Keep the soil fresh, water during droughts
The quality of the series SO LONG® is in the important and qualitative re-flowering of these cultivations. The flowering season starts in June and continues right into September, thus giving beds or containers a longer summer flair.
