Exclusive Pre-Order for Spring Pickup

Every year the Ashcombe management team attends a garden center conference in Ohio called Cultivate. We use this time to further our education and find amazing new products for you!

At the 2023 conference, our managers fell in LOVE with this stunning new variety of hydrangea.

Brandon, our expert nursery manager, managed to snag a limited number of these plants to sell at Ashcombe. Due to the limited supply, and our excitement, we will be offering a pre-order for this variety. There will be a limit of 2 plants per customer. These will sell fast - don't wait and miss out.

"Eclipse" Hydrangea Macrophylla

The show begins with clusters of vibrant, saturated blooms, transitioning through shades of pink and cranberry as the season progresses. Witness the mesmerizing transformation that gives 'Eclipse' its name, creating a kaleidoscope of color in your garden.

You can’t talk about the Eclipse Hydrangea without bragging about its foliage. With dark purple, almost black, coloration, it is a standout. Eclipse holds that dark color all season, even after being cut back or when grown in warm climates where other hydrangeas start to go green.

Thriving in partial shade to full sun and preferring well-drained, moist soil, the "Eclipse" Hydrangea is relatively easy to care for, adding to its appeal for both novice and experienced gardeners alike. Whether used as a focal point in a garden bed or as part of a mixed border, this hydrangea variety promises to elevate any outdoor space with its ethereal beauty and charm.

Pre-order your "Eclipse" Hydrangea today and be among the first to experience the beauty and enchantment it brings to your garden. Don't miss the opportunity to add this extraordinary plant to your collection!
