’After Midnight’ mophead is a hybrid of H. macrophylla and H. serrata with dark pink flowers when grown in sweeter soil or purplish-blue in soil where aluminum is available (acid soil). Sepals age to a light purple and retain their color for a long period. It’s an unpatented introduction jointly by Griffith Propagation Nursery (Watkinsville, GA) and Hawksridge Farms (Hickory, NC) - both great growers. Height to 4’ with similar width. Dr. Dirr thought enough of it to include it in the breeding of the forthcoming Hydrangea x ’Rock Star’ (along with ’Twist n Shout’, ’Lady in Red’ and ’Penny Mac’). We’re impressed. Good for Zones (5)6 - 9.
