Description

The Dear Dolores Hydrangea from the Southern Living Plant Collection is a tremendous and versatile plant that will provide beautiful mop-head blooms from spring into fall. As is typical with hydrangeas, these flowers emerge pink when planted in alkaline soils and blue whilst grown in acidic soils. The Dear Dolores is fast-growing and traditionally will reach 5′ tall as well as wide. These long-lived Hydrangeas will return to impress for 20 years or so, exhibiting multitudes of eye-popping blooms every year that will delight and amaze. The Dear Dolores makes a phenomenally stunning addition to any landscape, whether as a shady border planting, an accent, or in a mass planting.

  • dig hole 3X the width of pot,
  • backfill and plant 1″-2″ above soil level

    I had never bought from plants by mail before but when I received the hydrangea it is in remarkable condition! It has 12 blooms on it and not one broken stem. I will certainly order again.

    I ordered this for my mom (who’s name is Dolores!) for Mother’s Day. She cried when she opened the box..gorgeous blue blooms were already on the plant and it was packed so perfectly, not a stem was bent and every petal was intact. I would order again in a heart beat!
    Thank you for making a most discerning customer extremely happy!
