Beautiful Hydrangea
by Pam BJ, June 25, 2019

The plant arrived a little stressed as the nursery said there was a problem with the transport truck. The plant has perked up since being planted and is flourishing now in my garden. Flowering white now, has lots of blossoms; can hardly wait until it turns pink and looking forward to seeing the fall colors. This is a beautiful plant and would highly recommend this plant.
