If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily.

Hydrangeas are highly rewarding plantings that thrive in most zones given the correct variety is chosen.
Proper placement within your landscape is required to assure your ideal design is made.

Bloom Season: July-September
Bloom Color: Various
Height at Maturity: 3’-4’
Soil Type Preferred: Acidic, well-drained soil

Hydrangea macrophylla is unequivocally a prime choice for these zones. This bigleaf hydrangea proudly produces two kinds of blooms: those large beautiful ‘snowballs’ and the flat-topped formations known as ‘lacecaps’. These are the hydrangeas that can transform their colored blooms when amending their soil’s ph levels. For realizing those eye-popping pink blossoms, the ph needs to be increased. For realizing the brilliant blue blossoms, the ph needs to be lowered. Other varieties that you should consider for these zones are the Oakleaf Hydrangea, known as Hydrangea quercifolia, and the Smooth Hydrangea, known a Hydrangea arborescens. Both of these varieties are native to North America and thrive well in zones 3 and 4 as well. Another variety that does especially well in zone 8 is the Serrata Hydrangea, known as the Hydrangea Serrata. It caps off at 5’ tall. There is also a Climbing hydrangea, known as the Hydrangea anomala periolari, and is hardy up to zone 8 as a climber rather than a bush formation.
