Re: 'endless summer' hydrangea

I picked up a 3 gallon size at one of our better nurseries for $40 for the
display gardens. Then not long ago I spotted them at Meijer's for much less,
but a 2 gallon.  They're just about everywhere if they haven't been snatched
up and this means the price can be all across the board too.
I think the > comment of "It is usually hardy here in our zone 5".... is
just playing it safe.  A lot of places guarantee their plants but they can't
be sure the buyer will treat a Hydrangea properly.  They do need protection
to some degree and if someone plants it out where it's hit full force by
wind over a cold winter in Z5, I suppose they could lose it.  But we know
you wouldn't do that.

Given that it was found and promoted by a breeder in Minnesota,
one would think it'd be hardy practically everywhere. Then again,
maybe that breeder has a zone 6 microclimate or uses smudge pots
during cold spells...
