Double Lily-Like Blooms, Spring to First Frost
Why Tuff Stuff Ah-Ha® Hydrangea Shrubs?
It's right in the name: With the Tuff Stuff, you get the best of both worlds...spectacular lily-like blooms and strong, tough growth that outlasts even the worst conditions.
Even better? Tuff Stuff won't require constant maintenance, so it reblooms over and over without hassle. Bold blue hues in full double florets emerge again and again all summer long, delivering a profusion of color that's second to none. In fact, you'll get a constant supply of flowers from spring until the first frost!
Plus, the Tuff Stuff Ah-Ha® Hydrangea's flower buds are hardier than ever before, so you get vibrant blue or pink color all the way down to -10 degrees. Color like this as far north as New York? It's almost unheard of, but the Tuff Stuff Ah-Ha® Hydrangea fits the bill.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: First, choose an area with full sun to partial shade for your Tuff Stuff (simply shield it from excessive afternoon sun). It grows easily in organically-rich soil that’s somewhat moist but well-drained and acidic. However, it thrives in most soil types and prefers summer mulch.
To plant your Hydrangea Shrub, dig a hole deep enough to cover its root ball. After placing your plant, tamp down the soil while backfilling to avoid air pockets. Water your Tuff Stuff Hydrangea to settle the soil that surrounds the roots.
2. Watering: Water deeply and regularly during the first full growing season so that your Hydrangea’s root system becomes well-established. To test when and how much to water, check the top 2 to 3 inches of soil – if it’s dry, it’s time to water until it’s moist but not oversaturated. During times of drought, the shrub should be watered twice weekly instead of once weekly.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your Tuff Stuff Hydrangea regularly during the growing season.
4. Pruning: Prune if needed immediately after flowering. Any winter-damaged stems may be pruned in early spring.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Very please after disappointment
I purchased 9 Hydrangea and 2 Gardenia's on the same day. 5 Hydrangea from Home Depot, 4 from Fast Growing Trees along with the two Gardenia. Received the Home Depot shipment days before the Fast Growing. Got a little inpatient at the process. The Home Depot arrived, all appeared dead, I have found after attempting to revive them that one is still alive but only by a thread. I received the Fast Growing, Night and Day difference. Packed extremely well, full lively plants, much larger than anticipated. Leaving little doubt as weather permits I will receive what I paid for! I can only express my pleasure with your product by saying with certainty. "I was so pleased with your product, I have forgotten about the money I wasted on brand x's product. Thank you
nice healthy plants doing well shipped well a little pricey but worth it
Very healthy plant was sent already blooming good size just planted awaiting its maturity
So far, so good.
It's in the ground and looks fine. Ask me again in a year or two!
Full & blooming
I was impressed with th size and bloom although my blooms are purple not blue or pink? That may change after planting but I'm still happy with the purchase.
