So Pleased!

I received my 4-"Ruby Slippers" hydrangeas today via UPS. They were in perfect condition. Lots of sprouted, healthy leaves. Not wilted. Not even a broken leaf! Great job packaging and shipping. They are cozy in their new bed with a blanket of mulch, as this never-ending cold weather strikes the South again.

Exactly as advertised! First year, you can expect a plant with leaves as it focuses on getting established. Second year, you will get a few blooms. Third year, get out of it's way as this hydrangea takes off and looks exactly like the photos. I have three in a partial sun side garden. Give them plentiful of room and composted soil!
