Hydrangeas on Nantucket | The Season’s Best Blooms

A tour filled with the most amazing array of purple, blue, pink, periwinkle and lavender blooms

Few places explode with the vibrant and bountiful blooms of hydrangeas as does the island of Nantucket. The soil, temperatures and moisture levels 30 miles out to sea come together to help create the most amazing array of purples, blues, pinks, periwinkles and lavenders.

The peak time for viewing the season’s best and brightest is typically the last week of June through the 3rd week of July (or the end depending on the heat and rain throughout the month). We took a hydrangea spotting trip on July 9th and this was the bounty we got to enjoy. Take a virtual stroll through our album to see downtown and Sconset at her most colorful best.
