I found it in the Jungs catalog. I know Jungs does not have a high rating but I'm going to try them and buy this hydrangea.

Where can I get these? Jungs is sold out of them. I think this might be the most beautiful Hydrangea I've ever seen!

I found more at Gradensof theNorthstore.com. See if you can get on there otherwise, goggle Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea and look for it there. I hope Jungs is not going to back order mine. I'll be looking for it someplace else also.

It's over 24 inches tall. I'd say it is close to 3 feet tall. The trunks are thicker than my plants I've purchased locally of Pinky Winky. They had bent the stems down somewhat to fit in the box, but they appear to be ok. I can tell it's a good plant though. The buds are getting ready to start growing.

Does anyone out there know if the vanilla/strawberry hydrangea will thrive in zone 8b ( Jacksonville, Florida) My Southern Gardener's Book doesn't list it, and I'm afraid I'll be throwing my money away. I sure would like to have one if it doesn't get too hot here for it. Hope someone can inform me.

I've been looking all over too and can't find any. It will be a great companion to my Strawberries & Cream Hydrangea.
A huge nursery I frequently go to always have the most in quantity and variety on hydrangeas. Hopefully they may carry Vanilla Strawberry. I won't be surprised either if Lowe's will end up carrying them too comes summer time.

Venu - It's Brock Farms Garden World. Really huge selection not just on hydrangeas but also all kind of perennials, trees, aquatic-pond stuff, and oh boy, all kinds of fish for your pond. Prices are really reasonable, sometimes cheaper than big box stores.

2 locations -1. Coltsneck - same road and near Delicious Orchard (if you know where that is). This is the location I frequently go to. I love their clearance section (last building all the way at the back). You always find garden treasures (garden arts, pots, fountains, and hard goods) at rock-bottom prices.
2. Freehold - Rt. 9 not far from Freehold Mall. That place is really huge and I mean HUGE. It's like a maze. I think that's their main location.

Look at the water fountain below - $49.99 from that place.

I am in Hydrangea Heaven today. I called a local nursery awhile back and asked to be put on a waiting list for Vanilla Strawberry, and they called me yesterday. So today I picked it up and a 'Let's Dance - Moonlight' Hydrangea. I can't wait for them to bloom!

Vanilla Strawberry is also sold by Baileys Nurseries, so any garden center that has their products should also carry it.

I found it at Laurel Landscaping & Nusery in Corbin , KY. in a 1 gallon container for $18.99. Now I just have to figure the money out and take a drive to Corbin. Its about 28 miles from me, BUT worth the drive.

didn't think to ask if they would ship one.

I was worried about the size/quality of the Vanilla Strawberry that I had ordered from Gardener's Supply, so I bought the one at the nursery when it came in. Well, it looks like I was worried for nothing. Here is a picture of them side by side. The leafed out one on the left is from the nursery, bareroot in the middle is from Gardener's Supply, one on the right is 'Let's Dance - Moonlight'. All of them were the same price $29.99. GS had free shipping.

Has anyone grown these Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangeas in the Dallas/Fort Worth area? I have never heard of a hydrangea in Texas that could take full sun, but would love to try it maybe in partial afternoon sun?

I found these at a local nursery - fell in love with it. I bought one, brought it home & planted it. Luckily, I took a picture of it that day, because the next morning I went out to admire it and there wasn't a single flower left on it. The deer had eaten it for a late night snack. I was looking forward to watching it change color - oh well, maybe next year!

Gardenbridge, Renhy (short name for Strawberry Vanilla) is quite new. Started selling this year mostly so it is not common and is not available in many places locally. As such, you end up having to mail order. Since it is a hydrangea, its leaves will burn here if allowed to receive sun after 11am-12pm during the summer months. It can handle full sun during winter because it goes dormant and the leaves dry out anyways but NOW it would burn if not given sun protection. Paniculatas do not sell much here. I usually see them for sale at Northhaven Gardens in Dallas, Redenta's in Arlington and Blooming Colors in Grapevine. Selections are not large though and usually consist of well known varieties, not brand new ones.

Lynn, your blooms have a tinge of green suggesting that the bloom is immature. In such a case, I would expect the color change not to happen "soon". But my question is, did the plant label indicate when the color change would happen? Did it say something like "x" weeks after blooming? Or did it not say at all? Awesome picture, by the way. Put it on a PC Desktop or on a wall.

Well, I waited and my blooms never changed color to pink. I did have a tint of green, so I think they weren't mature blooms. I will just have to wait until next year when the plant is older.
