IšverstiShow in original languageAwful experience with these plants. They arrived small, broken and wilted. The only thing worse than watching expensive plants die is the customer service department making light of your experience.
I bought a dormant Cherry Tree and have been so pleased with the specimen but do not purchase Hydrangea’s from this company. They are small and it will be a good 5 years before they can even be considered worthy of the price being charged.
They replaced 1 that completely died and it is struggling. This will be the 3rd review I have posted because they are not approved and people need to know not to waste their money.
IšverstiShow in original languageSo far so good. Shipping was fast and the packing of the plant was solid. I didn’t put it in the ground for a couple days and just watered it in its bucket as per the included instructions.
It’s been planted for a little over a week now. It’s healthy and the 2 or 3 little flowers have already started to turn blue. I water daily and am glad I paid up for the 3 gal, most mature plant. Would I recommend this plant to family and friends? I would.
I’m excited to see its growth rate andI think it’s gonna end up being a nice looking little shrub.
IšverstiShow in original languageHonestly I am not sure how I feel about this plants yet. I feel like they came in rough shape but I know very little about plants in general so maybe that is what they are supposed to look like.
We planted them in an area where we grow other types of Hydrangea that we bought from a store a few seasons ago. The store bought ones weren’t what we were wanting to fill that area so that is why we bought these instead.
One of the plants is blooming but looks rough however I am not sure if the other one will survive. We have hope that it will but only time will tell. I took pictures after we planted it so that I can monitor its progress.
The Endless Summer Hydrangea series is acclaimed for its ability to produce blooms on both current and previous years growth. The blooms can be up to eight-inches in diameter and will bloom pink in alkaline soil or blue in acidic soil.
The addition of lime to the soil with raise the pH making the blooms pink, or the addition of garden sulfur will lower the pH changing the blooms to blue. They bloom in late spring until fall and are dormant from November to March.
Was very sceptic about ordering plants on-line. To many things could go wrong ! I was pleasantly surprised when I received my 8, 3 gallon hydrangea shrubs. They did not all come on the same day, but great care went into the packaging, and they were all healthy, watered, and did not lose one branch ! Thank you so much, and will be ordering again soon ! J.
This plant came with 9-10 branches, two of which already had blooms starting. No fungus or other diseases common to hydrangea. I was extremely pleased as I can sit the pot right on my porch. It’s nothing special (the pot) but it is blue! I am sitting home with a broken bone in my foot, and I had to have a plate put in, so you can imagine how much fun that is to a gardener this time of year.
And, of all places, Wal-Mart. I would recommend this to anyone.

Received my first order from Fast-Growing Trees yesterday. I was a bit shocked to see that my beautiful little limelight hydrangea tree suffered the wears and tears of travel and probably, extreme heat.
When I opened the box there were a pile of dead leaves at the bottom of the box and the container had been smashed in. None the less, her trunk is sturdy and all I see is beauty. She seems quite happy to have found a home near the surf and what little leaves she has are reaching towards the sun.
overall I think we’re gunna’ be just fine. Will update in the next coming months. as I see a little tiny white flower trying to bloom into something wonderful. Now, on to the Mexican lime tree! Came in perfect condition and appears to be very happy sitting in his new home on our patio which faces west.
We don’t have the heart to tell him he’s not all ‘that’ quite yet but we can tell he’s quite smitten with himself!! Also received some plants for potting which were a little droopy some much needed shade and water worked miracles!! They are practically dancing out of their shipping containers looking for their forever homes.
on to more planting today and tomorrow and. I may or may not be addicted to buying from this company. wish me luck!!.
2 came intact. they are tall as expected. the 3 rd tree was a bit beat up when it came. all due to movement during shipping. they adapted quickly after planting. they are now coming out for spring healthy.
good price compared to other places. don’t plant it in direct sun when you first remove from package. it will struggle. plant in pot with soil and place in indirect sunlight outdoor, and water. until all the leaves are back to normal.
not limp. it needs to slowly adjust from the shipping trauma. :)).
I planted our new hydrangea tree 2 days before we had an extreme 90s week. was afraid it wasn’t going to survive along with the Japanese maples and red maple. it was very hard on them but after a week of 90s and full sun the weather has returned to normal spring temps and I’m relieved to say that all of our new trees appear to be doing great.
all have purked up and have significant new growth. I will definitely be purchasing many more plants and trees from fast growing trees!.
Large, dense 6 to 8 inch long clusters of white flowers are held upright above the dark green oak leaf-shaped foliage. Flowers become rose-pink in fall and leaves turn deep red-bronze. Tan-brown exfoliating bark is attractive in winter.
The plants were a little small for the price, but very healthy and in good condition. They are all planted and growing well. It maybe that their good condition may enable them to catch up on size. Nice to have plants with no health problems.
White Hydrangea is theexemplary garden bloom. With its lavish manifestation, and its big bushy blooms it will add to your event, baby shower, engagement party or classic wedding a sense of calm, light and elegance.
I can’t say enough about these blooms. BEAUTIFUL, full and approx 7 inches in size each – many stems with multiple blooms. Well packed, and each individually with water. Cut off the baggie with water and place in water overnight and WOW they got even more beautiful.
There are enough flowers here for 6 table centerpieces. Lots of healthy, huge, green leaves to be utilized as greenery as well. This package offers an amazing deal for your dollar. I live in rural Colorado, and it appeared the florals had been packed that morning.
I ordered almost $900 worth of flowers from samsclub. com. it was A LOT of flowers! I estimate it would have cost well over 4 grand for a florist to do what we did. here’s a list of what we got: Hydrangea, White (70 stems) Spray Roses, White (100 stems) Hydrangea, Premium Blue (24 stems x2) Seeded Eucalyptus Greenery (40 stems) 3 orders Roses, Frutetto (50 stems) Roses, Vendela (100 stems) Pina Colada Limonium (60 stems) We created 17 relatively large centerpieces, 6 bridesmaids bouquets, 5 jr bridesmaids bouquets, 1 bridal bouquet, 4 corsages, one arch Large arrangement, two large barrel arrangements, and had a small amount of each type of flower left to use for cake table decor.
I ordered this large shipment to be delivered Thursday before my Saturday wedding. Thursday when they arrived we immediately unpacked them and placed them in buckets and large Tupperware containers with water and placed them in our bonus room above garage with AC turned cold as possible.
The flowers really fluffed and perked up over night. Friday me and 6 others worked from 1pm-6pm putting it all together. We put them back in the bonus room and they looked fantastic for the wedding. Not only did all the flowers look beautiful for wedding day, but they lasted for almost two weeks afterwards- the frutetto roses lasted the longest.
I ordered these hydrangeas for my son’s rehearsal dinner. Sam’s Floral Department created the arrangements in vases I furnished. The arrangements were absolutely beautiful! The hydrangeas were received on a Wednesday and were still gorgeous by the following Saturday (the wedding day).
We transferred the arrangements from the rehearsal dinner to the wedding. I highly recommend!.

Limelight Hydrangea has an ever-changing appearance. When it first blooms in midsummer, it is covered with creamy white, dense flower panicles. Before long their color changes to a pale green. Then, as fall approaches, they take on yet another look by gradually turning pink.
The bushes are vigorous and upright and can reach a height of 13 feet tall with 8 to 12 inch long panicles or flowers. Limelight Hydrangea is great for mass plantings, mixed shrub borders or woodland gardens.
Limelight blooms on new wood, so it is important to prune in late fall to early spring to ensure increased flowering. Space plants approximately 6 to 10 feet apart for best results. Hardy in USDA zones 3 to 8.
IšverstiShow in original languageThe perfect plant. But must be pruned according to directions or you will be disappointed. Pruned correctly it is a beautiful, prolific bloomer. The center piece of many of my plantings.
Can be pruned into a tree, bush or long spiked plumes with 8′ flowers changing colors as the season progresses from cream, to lime (more nitrogen added to soil will really make the green POP} to rusty fed in fall.
Good cutting flowers all season and then dried blooms for fall.
Incredible Hydrangea boasts 12 in. bloom heads held on stems so strong that drooping is never a problem, even after a rainstorm. A descendant of the beloved classic, Annabelle, it is blessed with stronger stems and flowers that are bigger and much more numerous.
It blooms from early summer until fall, and it blooms on new wood, so you can count on blooms even after very cold winters. Keep Incredible evenly moist and prune to 12 in. in late winter. Zones 3 to 9.
I bought 2 of the Incrediball Hydrangea over the past 2 years. The first one was planted in (Zone 7B) our front yard flower garden area. That area is partial morning shade with afternoon sun. The first year there were blooms but small like the plant as it was getting established.
This year the Incrediball Hydrangea has increased in height and width though still not huge, however I expect it to grow larger. I love this plant. It lives up to its name, and this year with 3 very large to large to medium bloom heads.
And, wow! Long lasting blooms that cause me each time I see it to marvel over this hydrangea. It started blooming early and the huge size, along with the long lasting blooms make it a winner. I think the plant has retained the blooms for 6-8 weeks.
I note the white blooms have begun to look more green. The second Incrediball Hydrangea is in the back flower garden area and receives mid morning sun. So far it has no appreciable blooms but it is growing nicely.
I find these plants to be a favorite. I am already planning to get more because of the impact and bloom habit. This IS a winner!.
I planted these facing North, my house wall is in their back. So they lay horizontal in a line east to west of my house. Zone 8A. Planted 1st week of April 2022. Will update after Summer & Winter next spring and let you all know how they did all year.
My only dislike is how small they were. I really thought they were going to be bigger. They came in a little plastic pouch. Kinda like the size of a cut off quart size plastic bag. The stems were fragile & brittle.
I broke one just taking it out of the box. They were white nearly translucent. However after getting some light they bounced back quickly and are now looking very green.
I live in Northern Arizona and am trying to get hydrangeas to flourish here. I was having only modest success until this plant. It grew beautifully from the moment we planted it in the spring and already produced 2 magnificent blossoms by mid June.
I am so very impressed. Now, we are in the midst of a once in a century heatwave, so we decided to put up a 40 percent sunscreen to protect from the afternoon sun. The plant continues to thrive. I am so very pleased to have found a hydrangea that does well in Sedona.
12. Moonrock Hydrangea | Zone 3-8 | White | 4 – 5 Feet | Full Sun | Partial Shade
In the second half of summer, when the sunshine can feel stifling and the garden beds tired, Moonrock Hydrangea will bring out one of the freshest color combinations, pale green and creamy white, to renew your landscape.
Or bring it close to the sitting area in a large container—these neutral hues work so well with many color schemes and the flowerheads are so large it won’t fade into the background. It’ll set the scene in a woodland garden as it draws in the butterflies.
And as it can grow up to 4-5′ tall, it’ll make a good flowering hedge around the perimeter.
Ordered 10 to replace a hedge along the driveway. Just received first box of 4 and got them planted this AM. plants that arrived look nothing like the potted plant in the photo. They are short, have maybe 3-4 leaves, leaves are bug eaten, some stems have no leaves on them whatsoever.
Will hope they do well, grow and develop properly, but have my doubts.
The hydrangea is a versatile shrub that can be grown in a variety of climates. In general, hydrangeas prefer cooler temperatures and some shade, making them a good choice for gardeners in zone 6 who are looking for a plant that will add color and interest to their landscape.
Hydrangeas are available in a wide range of colors, from white to pink to blue, and can be used as a focal point in the garden or as part of a mixed border. With proper care, hydrangeas will bloom profusely from late spring to early summer, providing months of enjoyment.
