Here are some of our most popular Hydrangeas:


Big Leaf Hydrangea

Big Leaf Hydrangeas are one of the most popular shade loving hydrangeas. these beauties have dense green foliage and large round blooms. Many varieties are compact, growing to only 3-4′ tall and perfect for small gardens or flower beds. Of course there are larger growing varieties as well.
Big Leaf Hydrangeas are available in a variety of colors. Blue is the most popular, however blue hydrangeas require acidic soil to stay blue! Pink hydrangeas are lovely and tolerate our alkaline soils. There are also multi colored varieties such as LA Dreamin.

Smooth Hydrangea

Hydrangeas prefer some moisture in the summer. The newer varieties like Incrediball and the Invincibelle series have sturdy stems that hold up the big flower even after a rain. These hydrangeas can be pruned almost all the way down in the fall to create a tidy hedge effect in the spring with HUGE flowers.
Hydrangeas prefer morning sun or shade (but not too much shade) and moist but not wet soil. Little pruning is required and is dependent on the variety. Fertilizer is a must for strong, vibrant blooms.

Oakleaf Hydrangea

Oakleaf Hydrangea

Oakleaf Hydrangeas have unique leaves like an oak tree (hence the name). The blooms come out white and fade to pinkish-purple red, which is simply gorgeous. The blooms last from July through September and dry beautifully. This hydrangea has the most stunning fall color. As with all hydrangeas, some moisture in the soil during the heat of summer is appreciated.

Panicle Hydrangea

Panicle Hydrangeas are easy to grow and can tolerate full sun. Short and tall varieties are both available. Cone shaped flowers start white then turn pink or red. For the best flower clusters, prune as needed in late winter or early spring.

Mountain Hydrangea

Mountain Hydrangea

From the mountains of Japan and Korea, the Mountain Hydrangea grows 2-4 feet high with pink or blue flowers that require pruning after flowering, as needed. The Mountain Hydrangea is a good option for growing in a container because of its small size. Blooms grow on old wood as small, compact flowers.

We carry the Tuff Stuff series of Mountain Hydrangeas, from Proven Winners.

Climbing Hydrangea

As the name implies, this hydrangea is a vine variety that can grow up to 40 feet high. It prefers partial to full shade and blooms from May to July. Plant next to brick, stone or wood structures for tall vining growth, or on arbors, walls or fences. The white flowers are very fragrant, making for a wall of sweet smelling flowers in the early summer. Pruning is done in the late winter or early spring to remove any damage from the winter and encourage new growth.
