So very sad

It is with broken heart and tired minds, that I have to report that my beautiful Tuf-Stuff Mountain Hydrangeas have died. They were so beautiful when they arrived to me. But overly hot (115) days & nights (80's) and now drought watering restrictions only 3 days a week and now cold to freezing temps (29 to 35) have done my beautiful Drama Mama's in. I tried everything during the heat and everything during this horrible cold to keep them alive. I truly am depressed about them. I have a very tiny front yard and I am desperately trying to bring in some flowers, besides roses (not much of a rose fan). So I am now looking for something else and I will eventually find something, but I took such loving care of these, and they could no longer stay. So depressed...

Hello! We're sorry to hear that you've had a difficult gardening season. It is more likely that your hydrangeas have gone dormant and are not dead. It is normal for hydrangeas to lose their foliage in winter. Once spring returns, your hydrangea should bounce right back to life! If you have any additional questions or concerns, please email us at info@greatgardenplants.com, as we are always happy to help diagnose any potential problems.

Strong and hardy

I received the two Tuff Stuff Ah-Ha Mountain Hydrangeas and they were in beautiful condition. I have been babying them ever since they got into the ground, because we have been hit with some very extensive heat. They do not like it, so I have them under a sun guard and set them free in the a.m. and early p.m. and then they go back into hiding. I will do this until I do not see them wilting because of the heat. I am very happy with them, and they are finally taking root. So all id good.

Growing nicely but haven't bloomed yet

We got these plants in the ground the next day after they arrived, and they are growing nicely with signs that they will bloom. However, since they haven't bloomed yet, I can't comment on the flowers. Communication was great, and they arrived when predicted. I would buy from this company again.
