US: Tuff Stuff hydrangea crowned National Shrub Madness ChampionThe 2017 Shrub Madness competition has come to an end after a highly competitive month of voting with Tuff Stuff mountain hydrangea being crowned the 2017 National Champion. Coming from a crowded field of 64 contenders, the competition narrowed to two hydrangeas after several rounds of voting on close matchups.
In the final round, Tuff Stuff hydrangea took an early lead and defeated Letís Dance Rave reblooming hydrangea. Throughout the competition, over 89,000 votes were cast with everyone vying for their favourite shrubs. This yearís Floral Four included 2016 Shrub Madness Runner Up Letís Dance Rave hydrangea, Invincibelle Spirit II smooth hydrangea, Tuff Stuff hydrangea, and newcomer Czechmark Trilogy weigela.
Tuff Stuff hydrangea has lacecap flowers that create a mass of color in early summer, and this rebloomer continues to produce new flowers right up until frost. The semi-double to double florets begin with creamy coloration in the center before maturing to an intense pink or blue.
For next year's Shrub Madness, bracket predictions will open in February and voting will begin in March.
