Information on Gertens’ Hydrangea Varieties

There are many different types of hydrangeas that can fit a wide range of environments and landscape situations. Hydrangeas are perfect because they add a splash of color to shade areas where many shrubs will not bloom, and they bloom later in the summer when many plants are finished blooming; now there are varieties that will also do well in your full sun gardens (they just might need a little extra water).

Some of the varieites that we carry here at Gertens are:
