About White Wedding® Hydrangea

The White Wedding Hydrangea is a deciduous/semi-evergreen plant and will go dormant during the winter months. When this plant is ordered during the Fall/Winter expect seasonal foliage decline(discoloration, spots, leaf drop) or the plant to arrive completely dormant.

What to do when a dormant plant arrives:

  1. Unpackage on arrival and water
  2. Your plant will be ready to be planted in the landscape or in a container on arrival, or if you wish you can keep your new plant in its container until spring that is ok too
    • If planting in the landscape
      • Consider using a root stimulating fertilizer to get your plant working hard establishing its root system during the winter months
      • Use a heavy Layer of mulch to protect the unestablished roots from frost 
  3. Dormant plants do require some watering: once a week should be sufficient 
  4. When Spring arrives and your plant begins showing signs of new growth increase your watering schedule to 2 times every 7 to ten days until established, then water as needed. Apply a slow-release granular fertilizer to give your plant a great start

The White Wedding Hydrangea is a dynamite new addition to the Southern Living Plant Collection! This hydrangea produces gorgeous cone-shaped white blooms every summer that are guaranteed to steal the show in your landscape. These large flower clusters have a crisper white hue than many popular Paniculata hydrangeas on the market today. These blooms are also quite long-lived. Therefore, they’re absolutely ideal for a cut flower arrangement.

The foliage on the White Wedding is soft in appearance and plentiful. The leaves emerge light green and mature to a medium hue and provide reliable growing season color and texture in the landscape. Furthermore, this variety is naturally compact. So shaping and pruning are largely unnecessary!

This Hydrangea is more deer resistant than most varieties. However, it isn’t deer-proof.

Use it as an accent, container, hedge or mass planting.

White Wedding Hydrangea Care

This variety is hardy from USDA Zones 4-9, down to -30° F when fully established. Additionally, this is a deciduous plant and will lose all of its leaves in the winter.

Plant in Full Sun to Partial Shade for best results. Keep in mind that too little sun results in decreased bloom and foliage potential.

The White Wedding Hydrangea tolerates most native soil types. However, rich soil with good drainage produces superior results.

Water 3-4 times per week during the first growing season. During the second season, provide supplementary water 2-3 times per week, or simply as needed. After it’s established, this selection proves itself to be notably drought tolerant.

Spacing Recommendations

For a seamless planting, plant your White Wedding Hydrangea 2 feet apart. Space them 6+ feet apart for gaps between plants.

    What a pleasure to work with PBM.com! I placed my order on a friday afternoon and received the order less than 24 hours later. (I live in the same state as PBM) Greg was so nice and friendly to work with over the phone. The plants arrived in beautiful condition with blooms all over them. I can’t wait to watch them flourish in my yard! I’ll be following up with another order soon. Thanks PBM!!

    I wish I could edit my last comment . BUT, I just wanted to say how much I LOVE my White Wedding Hydrangea. It is doing so so excellent. It’s been blooming like crazy. I rec’d it August 23rd . Planted it right away. It’s doing so good. I’m going to order some more I think. Plants ordered here are magnificent. Wish I could post a picture.

    I ordered 5 White Wedding Hydrangeas and they came within 3 days. The plants look strong and healthy and although its the dormant season I am hoping for great results in the Spring. They were well packaged and moist and not damaged in any way. I will certainly order from PBM again in the future.

  9. Martha (verified owner)

    Better than I expected. Plant is of excellent quality, and was carefully packaged. Service was excellent, too. I plan to shop at Plants by Mail again.

    Ordered 3, received them all in good shape. They are dormant at this time, can’t wait to see them bloom.

  11. Marcy Perry (verified owner)

    I just received my White Wedding Hydrangea today. The plant is beautiful. The healthiest plant I’ve received by mail. Can’t wait to plant it.

  12. Joyce Koth (verified owner)

    Just received my White Wedding Hydrangea and I am very pleased. This was my first order by mail so wasn’t sure what to expect. The order arrived in a few days after ordering and was in excellent condition. It looked just like i our chased from nursery. It has been planted and looks great. Can’t wait for blooms to appear. I would not hesitate to order from PBM again. Definitely recommend.

  13. Marie Mays (verified owner)

    My “White Wedding” Hydrangeas ( I ordered 4) came today!!!!! So happy! They look so healthy and need a good drink before I plant. I waited for seven days from when I had ordered them and am so glad they have finally arrived. Thank you!

  14. Marcy Perry (verified owner)

    This is a wonderful shrub. I can’t wait for the blooms. PlantsbyMail have excellent plants.

  15. Skampers819 (verified owner)

    plants arrived in great shape. Now I just need to get it in the ground. Will buy from this company again

  16. Phyllis Cramer (verified owner)

    I ordered these hydrangeas after reading about them in Sothern Living Magazine. The 3-gallon potted plants arrive promptly and very well packed. They appear healthy and after two weeks in the ground are still alive. I look forward to seeing them in bloom this summer.

  17. Michael Kenneth Sheridan (verified owner)

    plants arrived in outstanding condition and are doing quite well in my front yard.

  18. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Shipping was great and fast. Arrived when supposed to. But even though it says deer resistant, it’s not. Deer went after them two days after they were planted and we now have soap on stakes and deer scram on the plants to prevent them from being eaten. If we lower our guard and don’t put deer repellant on the deer will devour them.

    The only reason I did not give the White Wedding Hydrangea a 5 is that I just planted it a few weeks ago and it has not bloomed. It is to early. the plants came in very good shape. I unboxed and watered them within minutes of their arrival and planted them the next day. My soil is heavy clay, however, over the past 10 years I have been improving the soil. I expect these plants to do well. They have unobstructed western exposure and are in front of a short brick wall. Thus far they are not showing any signs of stress. I plan on buying more after I have experienced these.

  21. Jerry Winters (verified owner)

    I love my White Wedding Hydrangea. The shipping service is excellent. I Will look to PBM in the future!

  22. Barbara (verified owner)

    The plants came promptly. I gave one as a gift and kept one. It’s in a container and doing great!

  23. Shannon (verified owner)

    My White Wedding hydrangea arrived later than expected and spend three days in a Georgia FedEx facility (neither problem was in any way the fault of PBM). And still, when it arrived it was healthy and beautiful. It came packed securely and looked like it had been well cared for before shipping. I’m new to gardening, so if I can keep this one alive and healthy, I’ll likely come back and order another. 🙂

  24. Barbara

    Beautiful, healthy, strong plants delivered. I am very, very pleased. They seem to be happy in their new home. Can’t wait for the blooms! thank you.

  25. Michael Green (verified owner)

    I was surprised just how small my White Wedding Hydrangea was. By far the smallest 3 gallon flower I have ever purchased. The good news it is still alive and appears to be growing. Time will tell whether or not I made a good purchase.

  26. Angela (verified owner)

    I bought the plant for my daughters birthday it came on time and the shipping packaging was great. The plant was perfect and in perfect shape when I received.
    Thank you definitely order again.

  27. Carol Katz (verified owner)

    /so far, so good. The plant looks very healthy and I look forward to seeing blooms next year

  28. Marsha B Linam (verified owner)

    Plants are big and healthy with buds! I can hardly wait until they are blooming. I’m going to love them. Great customer service.

  29. Madeline (verified owner)

    Received my plants 4 days after I placed my order. The packaging was very impressive. Hydrangeas are my favorite summer plant. Looking forward to having that pop of color all summer long.

  30. Linda Lou (verified owner)

    I saw a white hydrangea years ago, but, could never find one to buy. A friend at work was talking about hers and she gave me the website for Plants By Mail. It came well-packaged and easy to get out of the box. I just planted it about a week ago and I can’t wait to see it bloom. I am sure I will be buying more for my mostly-shade backyard. Thank You Plants By Mail.

    Plant arrived in very poor condition. I would NEVER recommend this vendor.

  32. Anonymous

    Plant arrived in a less than desirable condition. Only ordered because part of the Southern Living collection. Will be extremely cautious before ordering on line in the future. Actually posted on Facebook for my friends’ feedback to be fair.

  33. Julia Martin (verified owner)

    I was so excited when I received my 6 White Wedding hydrangeas and in such great timing! However, upon further inspection at least one of them shows very clear signs of fungal distress and the rest are starting to show as well, probably due to overhead watering as well as VERY dense brancing. Emailed PBM 2x in hopes that if these plants don’t make it they will stand by their guarantee but have yet to hear back from them… Not sure if this $200+ purchase was a good one.

  34. LJ Moody (verified owner)

    Absolutely LOVE MY PLANTS,! Thank you for your prompt service. My plants came in healthy, and even budding . In only a few weeks I have blooms on every one !! Will definitely be ordering again! Thank you PBM for restoring my faith in mail ordering 😍

  35. Nicco (verified owner)

    Very unhappy with the condition both the White Wedding Hydrangeas arrived in. They were covered in black spots and yellow, damaged leaves. I am trying to nurture them to health. Very very very unhappy.

    I was amazed how well this plant was packaged and it arrived quite healthy and ready for a new home. I had a hard time finding this plant and the website made ordering easy. It arrived quickly and I am very impressed how well it is doing! I did not know ordering plant via a website would be so wonderful an idea! I am ready to order more!!

  37. Jack (verified owner)

    We bought an additional three “White Wedding Hydrangeas” based on how pleased we were with the first order. Return customer is the best testimony. The second group was as good as the first. Plants are beautiful and flowering.

  38. Louise Stettler (verified owner)

    I ordered 2 & was pleasantly surprised that they arrived in excellent condition. One even had a bloom. Looking forward to ordering another as a gift’

  40. Susan Pienta (verified owner)

    2 out of 3 plants delivered by FedEx were broken. A few days after planting them the deer devoured them.

    • nick norman

      Oh goodness. I am so sorry. Sometimes deer are plain unkind to our gardens. Please give me a call and we can find a way to work this out for you.

    I love Plants by Mail. Everything I get from them looks healthy and grows well. These White Weddings are the first dormant plants I’ve gotten but they look like they were doing well when they closed for winter. I’ve only had one problem with a PbM order (shipped me the wrong kind of yew) but they took care of it immediately when I called, no cost to me and let me keep the wrong plant. Their prices are at the low end of their competition and customer service is at the top end. That’s refreshing. My favorite nursery and the White Wedding is my favorite hydrangea.
