The Bobo Hydrangea was recommended last year after it's arrival. I have done the best with these types of hydrangeas since the mop heads do not perform in my yard well either. The first year I did not expect too much. We had a exceptionally hard winter this past year so when the snow finally melted, the bush wasn't looking it's best. I trimmed off the bad stuff and gave it a organic fertilizer. It was looking a little yellow. It has since greened up but in the middle of July I would of thought I would see some buds or something. Nothing yet. A little disappointed because the description says buds every year.

Loads of flowers on a tiny plant! This dwarf hydrangea will turn heads! Bobo is a delightful plant that is engulfed by large white flowers in summer. The flowers are held upright on strong stems, and continue to grow and lengthen as they bloom. In fall they can turn pinkish. It is an undeniable asset to any garden, particularly those in which space is limited. This cold-hardy plant is a great choice for container gardens! It won the Gold Florall medal for best novelty plant.

This plant arrived 8 weeks ago in perfect condition. I planted in on the SE corner of my house, and it is loaded with buds; it looks like a shrub that has been in place for years!Toni HoodHumboldtIowaUnited States1 year ago
Love this plant. So easy to care for. I have it in a pot on our patio. Everyone compliments it. I am looking forward to getting a few more to add to patio. Can't go wrong...Megan McKinneyGrants PassOregonUnited States1 year ago
