With complete control over our own quality production, we’re able to grow the kind of Hydrangea you’re looking for. We carry the most popular variations, and some other options as well. Come see our selection!

Here are some of our most popular Hydrangeas:

Big Leaf Hydrangea

The Big Leaf Hydrangea is one of the most popular varieties because of their full, colorful bloom. They typically grow 6-10 feet high and wide with red, blue, purple, white and pink flowers that bloom from June through October. They are fairly easy to maintain, with little pruning required.

Smooth Hydrangea

Huge white or pink flower heads bloom between June and September on this beautiful hydrangea variety that grows from 3-5 feet high. They need regular watering or a rainy summer, and should be pruned close to the ground for winter because blooms typically show up on new growth. 

Oakleaf Hydrangea

One of the most popular varieties of Hydrangea, the Oakleaf Hydrangea is a great low-maintenance shrub with white, to purple or pink flowers. A unique feature of this hydrangea variety is its fall color explosion, with the flowers changing color and its leaves during orange or red. It does well on its own without much maintenance, but can’t have constantly wet roots. Flowers bloom between July and September.

Panicle Hydrangea

Also known as Hydrangea Paniculata, this beautiful white hydrangea can grow very tall – up to 15 feet high – with cone-shaped flower heads that start green, then turn white before going peak as the season closes. For the best flower clusters, prune as needed in late winter or early spring. They love full sun or partial shade.

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.

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.

Hydrangea "Moonlight"

This gem of the “Let’s Dance” series from Proven Winners produces some of the largest blooms we’ve seen on new re-bloomers. These 8-10” flower heads bloom on straight, sturdy stems making an explosive cut flower or shade garden accent. Re-blooming flower color is dependant on pH. Full-grown plant size is three to four feet tall.

All Summer Beauty Hydrangea

Now there’s no excuse to be short on color with your summer flowering shrubs – Hydrangeas provide your yard and garden with re-blooming royalty. All Summer Beauty Hydrangeas begin blooming in June and repeat until the first hard frost, often as late as October. If you were worried your flower buds were destroyed by the cold on your old Hydrangea varieties, don’t be! These re-bloomers set flower buds on new growth so your flowers are guaranteed to be on their way!

Pink flowers are typical with alkaline clay soils, and blue flowers with the proper addition of acidic soil amendments. Flowers grow up to 6” in diameter with the plant growing up to four feet tall.

"Pee Wee" Oakleaf Hydrangea

The Oakleaf Hydrangea is one of the few Hydrangeas native to the United States. The Pee Wee variety is a compact plant, suited in spaces less than four feet with the same dramatic four seasons of interest. Large, oak-shaped leaves provide dramatic texture to shady gardens, with large white blooms that stand tall in summer, burgundy fall foliage and peeling bark to add interest in fall and winter.

Hydrangea "Vanilla Strawberry"

Panicle Hydrangeas are larger and more sun-tolerant than their mop-head cousins. Vanilla Strawberry sports white flowers that turn pink, then strawberry red as the summer progresses. Trim down early in the spring each year for a neat, compact shrub around 6’ tall.

L.A. Dreamin' Hydrangea

Re-blooming Hydrangeas just got a big push in a new direction. L.A. Dreamin’ is an inspiring new variety with a kaleidoscope of colors all on one plant. Blue, pink and lavender purple flowers blooming at the same time regardless of soil chemistry! Oh, and it’ll keep sending up flowers from June until frost.

Impress your garden guests with lush, blue flowers without the need to fuss with chemical fertilizers. This Hydrangea variety is grown successfully outdoors in harsh Michigan winters, so no matter the mid-Ohio winter, you know when the snow melts you’ll enjoy a summer full of vibrant, healthy blooms on thick, sturdy stems. Flowers grow up to 6” in diameter with full-grown plant size up to 6 feet tall and wide.
