I'm over the moon excited that these hydrangeas arrived healthy, large, full and ahead of the anticipated scheduled delivery. These are plants I would've personally picked myself - straight trunks, symetrical, full even branches and healthy lush green with lots of new growth. My 5 hydrangeas were ordered on a Friday, processed Saturday and shipped via Fed Ex from Alabama on a Monday; I received them Wednesday morning in Houston. The plants were moist, well wrapped and shipped in a divided box with 2 per box. A few of the tops were broken but thats to be expected, nothing is ever perfect. But Home Depot came pretty close to a perfect experience for me.
