Hydrangea is a valuable genus of some 100 species of shrubs and vines grown for their large and very showy flower heads. Hydrangeas are at their best in summer and fall—a quiet time for most woody plants—and are worth having for that reason alone. For more information on Hydrangea care, click on Growing Guide.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Tough beauties!

Planted these about a year and a half ago; they produced gorgeous, enormous blooms the first year and have come back for a marvelous repeat performance this summer! They are about 5 ft' tall, stand upright no matter the weather and the blooms never flop. Furthermore, they look as great dried as they do on the plant. Strong recommend for that super classic hydrangea look!

Hydrangea arborescens Incrediball

I ordered this hydrangea from WFF in 2013. It is now June of 2022 and all I can say is that it's ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. It is now 6 feet high (the height of my fence) and very wide. All I do at the end of the season is cut off the withered flowers, nothing else. It is the centerpiece of my back yard. I planted this in a sunny area of my back yard against a white fence. In the wintertime it just looks like a bunch of sticks protruding from the soil so much so that my son said "why don't you cut down that dead bush." But by the end of March, beginning of April, you can see the buds beginning to protrude from those little sticks. My son was blown away by 'the dead bush.' Every year it is more and more amazing. My best purchase from WFF.

Beautiful Hygrangea

I bought the flower last fall. This is the first bloomed for me early spring and summer. I can't believed how beautiful they look and how big they are. I will purchase three more this fall.

This plant is amazing. 2nd year and ginormous. Wish I could share pics - worth the money. A bit needy in the water dept for the first year or so but worth it!

Incredibly hardy and strong (careless contractors be damned!)

Ordered from WFF and planted in spring 2016, two Incrediball hydrangeas are in their second year in my backyard (in a spot with morning sun & afternoon shade). The two bushes produced several large flowers within months of planting and, as promised, their branches did not topple under their weight. Then, in spring 2017, the two bushes were happy and healthy before a crew of careless roofers managed to break both bushes with debris and their trampling feet. I was devastated but, to my surprise, the Incrediballs bounced back within a month's time (they're about 3' tall already) and look as great as ever! So pleased with these strong shrubs!

Growing H. arborescens

Light/Watering: Most varieties thrive in full sun in the North, but in the South require afternoon shade. Moist soils that do not dry out are best; do not plant in hot, dry, exposed sites. Mulch to conserve moisture and buffer soil temperatures.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Fertilize once in spring with a fertilizer designed to encourage blooms (such as 15-30-15). Soils should be moist but well drained, and rich in organic matter.

Pests/Diseases: None serious. Occasionally powdery mildew will infect the foliage, especially in humid areas with poor air circulation. Treat with an appropriate fungicide if the problem is serious, and be sure to rake up and destroy all fallen foliage in the autumn.

Pruning: In early spring, cut stems back by about one-third their total height, which builds a strong woody base. Hydrangea arborescens blooms on new wood.

Reflowering: You may cut the first flowering stems of H. arborescens and hang to dry for arrangements; rebloom may then occur in August or September.

Transplanting: Young plants may be transplanted when dormant in early spring; larger tree-form varieties are difficult to move once established, but it can be done. Prune top growth after transplanting to reduce water loss.

End of Season Care: Rake up and destroy any fallen foliage that was infected by powdery mildew or other fungi.

Calendar of Care

Early Spring: Cut stems back by about one-third their total height, which builds a strong woody base while also encouraging abundant new growth for lots of flowers and a lush, full look. Feed plants with a fertilizer high in phosphorus (such as 15-30-15) to encourage blooms. Complete any transplanting before leaves unfurl.

Mid-Spring: Mulch plants after soil has warmed to conserve moisture and buffer soil temperatures. Watch for powdery mildew and treat as needed.

Summer: Cut flowering stems from H. arborescens and hang to dry if desired.

Fall: Remove and destroy any fallen foliage that was infected by powdery mildew.
