    • Beautiful plant- but a few notes: saying this is a Maintenance Category Easy is not accurate- I would recommend you know something about hydrangeas before buying this particular variety. It is a smaller macrophylla, so understanding pruning, water and light levels will ensure success. I am in Indiana zone 6, I planted 3 of these in 2021 and they get shade most of the day- about 4 hours of sun. They will wilt when it gets hot and it is important to water them a lot during the hottest part of summer. They also put on blooms during the hottest part of summer so you can start to see why water is so important. I feel for those gardeners in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas that get almost no rain over the hottest summer months. I also recommend testing your soil before adding either lime or soil acidifiers to get the bloom color you want....see, defiantly NOT an easy category!

    • Planted these in zone 8b. In shade and well draining soil. While they stayed a bright green all summer, they barely grew. No blooms whatsoever. Hoping next year will be better?

    • By far my Favorite hydrangea that I’ve ever owned! Such deep blue blooms, turning purple. Deep green foliage make it look so lush. I just wish I had more!
