Customer Reviews & Photos
- Summer Crush Hydrangea
The bushes arrived healthy and in stunning color. While they needed a lot of water to get established, they are healthy and happy in my garden. Recall that they like some shade, which was hard to find in my garden.
Came healthy and good size. Blooms began immediately. It is growing and we love it.
Received a very nice 'Summer Crush Hydrangea' plant and well packed. Waiting to see the 'red' blooms. A good transaction! A 5* vender!
It arrived fairly good size, good packaging, it's blooming already. Overall happy with the product.
The service couldn’t have been better. The plants were in superb condition and the red was just what we were looking for. Would definitely work with FastGrowingTrees in the future.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: First, select a location with well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade – any area with approximately 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day with a bit of dappled shade is perfect.
When you’re ready to plant your Summer Crush, dig a hole that’s about two to two and a half times the size of your plant’s root ball, place it in the hole, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots.2. Watering: Your Summer Crush Hydrangea is heat tolerant, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule. Water your Hydrangea Shrub about once weekly or more often in extreme heat and check the surrounding soil – if your soil is dry, about 3 inches down, it’s time to water your plant.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Summer Crush with a well-balanced blend in early spring, before flowering begins.
4. Pruning: Remove any wild branches, or prune for a desired shape and size during late summer or fall, after flowering is complete.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase.
