Questions & Answers

Can it be grown in pot

Asked by: Frank
Definitely. I received mine about three weeks ago and they are still in the pots (waiting for one other plant before putting in the ground). However, I do believe these will grow fairly large, so you may have to do a lot more pruning to keep it bound to a pot.

What size is the plant? How quickly does it grow?
Asked by: Netti
The plant came in a 6" pot. The first year it grew to about 18 inches around. The second year it got about 24" and the flowers were very pretty, an intense pink. The 3rd season, my lawn maintenance people killed it by assuring me it could be transplanted into a different spot...don't do that. I am in the process of moving and will definitely get some for my new house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best online site Had been looking for Hydrangea plants and finally tried online. Bought 3 from another online nursery and they were terrible...1 was the worse plant I've ever seen. Basically no warranty only a runaround. They were suppose to be Proven Winner plants, so I ran a search on Proven Winner Hydrangea and found Home Depot. Bought some from the Proven Winner online site and also Home Depot. Home Depot is best online site I've found...not even close! Yes, the Proven Winner online site plants were good, but I liked Home Depot's more...and, their guarantee can't be beat! Print out the purchase email and return the plant to a local Home Depot or use the return slip that came with the plants. I never even considered returning any, since all have been healthy beautiful plants. Fast shipping .. beautiful & healthy plant .. best online guarantee that I've found!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arrived in good shape...time will tell I only ordered the one plant, so I knew what I was getting. But there was no documentation that came with the plant. Had I ordered multiple varieties, it could be difficult to figure out what each is so I make sure I plant it in the right spot. I would have liked to see something that tells me watering and sunlight requirements. The plant arrived upright and secure in its box. I removed promptly and watered. The plant doesn't appear stressed. I'll have to give it some time to see how it survives in its new home

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sprang to life I ordered this a bit early and it arrived the first week of March, dormant and looking dead. We were still under a frost risk (in fact we had several days under freezing) so I put it in my basement, away from light. It warmed up enough that when I went to plant it in late March it had already sprouted. It's in the ground now and growing well. We're looking forward to many happy years form this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a disaster I ordered two one gallon plants and one two gallon plant. All three arrived as one gallon. The two one gallon plants were cut about three inches above the dirt. Why? The other one gallon plant was 24 inches tall. I am having a difficult time understanding this. The order was split up and arrived in different packing. The larger plant had packing peanuts all over. Took me 30 minutes to remove. Another order of nine 2 gallon plants was suppose to arrive today but UPS says it has not shipped. The destination is listed as the United Kingdom but I live in Connecticut. Called the helpdesk and e-mailed customer service and they had no idea what was going on. Home Depot website still says it has shipped and has arrived, but the UPS tracking number says that they have not received the plants and when they do United Kingdom is the destination???

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely Hardy Plants I ordered two limelight hydrangea plants that had a long, hot and rough trip. Both plants arrived wilted one was very wilted, green but looked dead. I quickly misted the leaves and watered each plant, upon arrival. One plant sprang back to life by the next morning, but the other plant seemed to get worse and more dead each day. I thought about returning the dead plant but decided to plant it as I am familiar with this plant and they are very resilient. After about a week and a half of morning sun and consistently moist soil the dead plant finally has new growth, I believe it will be just fine by next growing season. I strongly recommend you give these limelight hydrangeas a chance to pop back, keep in mind that the plant may get worse looking before it gets better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy plant delivered to a doorstep! The Limelight ColorChoice Hydrangea - 1 gal. Hardy Shrub arrived extremely well packaged directly from a a greenhouse. The box arrived at my doorstep in tact with the plant well protected. The plant unpacked easily and was healthy upon arrival. I immediately transplanted the plant from it's container and have been monitoring it's health for the past few weeks. The plant has yet to bloom but is still in excellent health. The plant foliage and branches are about 12 to 14 inches around.

As a person who appreciates reviews when making my purchase decisions, I felt it necessary to write one of my own. The quality of these plants is positively fantastic! They came empty of much, in the pots, which I expected. However, within two days, the growth had taken off! These are beautiful and grow very quickly. We actually have not yet planted them in the yard, as we are waiting for one other tree and wanted to do everything at once. That said, they are taking off (lots and lots of leaves) just in the pots. I am really looking forward to putting them in the ground and watching them grow and eventually, bloom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plants By Mail I received this hydrangea for free in exchange for writing this review. If you don't have a good nursery nearby, this is a great way to get specialty plants. The plants come packaged well, and arrive in the condition of the place they left. In this case the plants shipped from Michigan and arrived in Seattle. Were a little ahead of Michigan right now, so the plants look a little delayed compared to everything else. Don't expect the plants to arrive in bloom like the marketing picture. Also beware of the weather conditions between your house and Michigan. I tried this once before and the plants froze and died. I haven't had these for a full season yet, so I can't comment on the quality of the blooms or the health of the plant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from low maintenance and hardy I live in Hardiness Zone 5B, and my gardening philosophy is "survival of the fittest"! I got this shrub in mid-February, when it was dormant. I kept it in the pot and pretty much ignored it for the next two months. I finally put it outside in April once it warmed up a little and let nature take its course. Much to my surprise, the shrub is still alive and thriving. Every indication is that it will be a permanent fixture in the garden for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NICE PLANT! I received my Limelight Color Choice Hydrangea and was pleasantly surprised. It is so healthy! Nice size plant for the pot size and bursting with new growth already. I have planted it in my yard and cannot wait for it to bloom. I would definitely purchase again. Although there was no plant information/name with the plant, it was easy to find them online and get all of the information.
