Product Details

First Editions® Vanilla Strawberry™ Panicle Hydrangea from Baucoms Nursery features enormous flower heads that are held upright on red stems. The flowers emerge creamy white in midsummer, change to pink as the night temperatures drop, and finally turn strawberry red later in fall. New flowers emerge as older blooms change color, giving Vanilla Strawberry™ a multicolored effect in late summer and early fall. The large blooms are excellent for fresh cut and dried flower arrangements and are especially well-liked for dried winter floral displays.

      A:  Hydrangeas often bloom in or after the second year. Concentrate on growing healthy roots and you'll have 50 years of blooms starting next year. These also bloom on new wood so you can safely prune them back in January or February.

        Answer This Question

        A:  When I saw that I was getting a 3 gallon pot, I thought that this plant was going to be much bigger than what it was. My stems are relatively bare, and there aren’t that many leaves on it. Maybe it is from the shipping that this happened. I can only hope that my flowers bloom next year, because paying over $60 for this plant to come in this condition, I’m not happy. I have friends who bought a smaller version of the plan but much healthier looking at Lowe’s and was less than half the price. Also, sometimes if you water the plant too much, it’ll mimic the same characteristics as if you don’t water it enough.

          A:  Same experience here. Waste of money. Don't even try to get a refund. Home Depot rejected my request.

          by|Jul 22, 2023

            A:  Maybe try spraying Seven on it...it may have bugs.

            by|Aug 14, 2020

              A:  I recommend taking all the leaves off, that have been contaminated and keep watering like normal. It will start new growth and new branches grew without any of that and the plant food helped it gain its strength in such quick time.

                  Great buy
                  I order 2, both came in healthy with a few buds. I kept them in their own containers until I know where to put them. It continues to grow buds and blooms. I finally put them in the grown in front of my house and it’s doing really well.

                      Highly upset
                      No where in the description did it say the plant was not a bloomed flower. I thought it would had come to me bloomed instead I received green plants. At what point does this begin to bloom? Very disappointed.

                            Excellent Shrub
                            I just received this shrub on 6/17/21 and I am very happy. The shrub looked a bit droopy but after planting and watering it is otherwise very healthy. I will update my review at a later time with more pics.

                                Not very healthy
                                Not sure is the plant sick or are inserts on it. The leaves look not very healthy.
