What the Gardeners Have to Say
I have both Snow Queen and Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangeas. I can definitively say that Ruby Slippers has a much better form than Snow Queen Oakleaf Hydrangea. The form is tidy, dense, and compact, and the flowers rest nicely right on top of the foliage. It's also tough as my roofers dumped a pile of old roof decking and shingles on top of one of my Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangeas and broke several branches, but it is bouncing right back.
Plants look great 30 days after planting. Fingers crossed for Texas heat next summer.
I purchased 4 of these same climbing hydrangeas in 2017 from a different retailer. Wish I had seen them here for $24.99 first! It took a couple of years to get rolling, but now they are spectacular on my East fence city garden. I added nine foot trellises since my fence could only be 6 feet tall and cemented them 1 foot from the fence. Now it's like the "secret garden" back there all summer long. Couldn't be more pleased!
Plant arrived in good condition and was planted upon arrival. New growth was apparent within 2 wks of planting. It Is now mulched and protected for winter. I'm anxious for spring to arrive !!!
The Little Lime Punch Panicle Hydrangea arrived in excellent condition. The plant looks so healthy! I planted it a couple of weeks ago and it is still doing very well. Since it is almost mid-October I am sure we will have a freeze any night now here in Colorado, so I will keep my fingers crossed that it survives the winter and is able to grow in the spring. I am excited to watch it grow.
Plants arrived in good shape and with easy directions for planting. It has only been a month, but they seem to be doing well in their new home. A few slugs appear to be my only concern at this time.
I am completely pleased with my order of Ruby Slippers oak leaf hydrangeas. I ordered the quart version. Since I planted them, they have doubled in size. Very pleased.
This was my first order with Hydrangea, and was very pleased with both the product and their customer service. I purchased 8 plants and all arrived well packed, protected, and moist. Following my 2 days of acclimation, I planted them, hoping to have them take root well before the winter. The heat wave in late August/September was brutal, yet with a lot of TLC and protection 7 of the 8 survived, and the one that perished was readily replaced by the company, and has since been planted and doing well. They've even started to show small blooms. I'm very excited to see them take root and grow each and every day. I'm most confident in company and their products, and will certainly recommend them and purchase from them again.
p.s. Their website is easy to use and offers a great way make new selections and learn about these beautiful plantings.
Keep up the GREAT work!
I ordered Alice Oakleaf a month ago to replace one whose roots a gopher had nibbled to death. After unpacking and watering the plant, I left it in shade for 2 days to acclimate. Acclimate it did—its leaves perked right up. As for our epidemic of gophers this year, I’ve learned from trial and error that a tablespoon or less of coffee grounds sprinkled in the planting hole effectively repel them. So this Alice Oakleaf, now one month after planting, looks happy and healthy. And with roots that remain unmolested. Nancy

The plants were shipped in good condition. Very happy with them.
Plants arrived in one piece and have really perked up before I plant them!!
Fed-X did not deliver my hydrangeas however I spoke with customer service and my replacement plants are being mailed out again. I really appreciate their quick response and great customer service. Looking forward to my new hydrangeas.
Can’t wait to plant soon….all plants arrived intact!!
The plants were nice multi-branched specimens, very green and healthy. The packaging was very well done. I’ll order from this company again.
