I just purchased Endless Summer® hydrangeas. Can I leave them potted until next spring to plant without injury?

Summer Crush Hydrangea planted in a decorative container


Yes, you could leave these potted but I’d suggest transplanting them into a slightly larger pot if you can – even a larger nursery pot if you don’t have any decorative pots to hand. Your hydrangea will appreciate the opportunity to expand its roots. Make sure to watch this video on how to plant hydrangeas in containers if you choose to do that. When winter rolls around, make sure to watch this video on preparing containers for winter. Remember that potted hydrangeas will need watering more frequently than those in the ground too, so take some time to review watering tips for container hydrangeas.
