Hydrangeas resource thread

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

In addition to this forum, DG provides you with many ways to learn more about Hydrangeas, find sources, and share what you know with others. This thread is intended to help you explore those features and provide a permanent reference tool with helpful links and shortcuts.

Getting the most from PlantFiles

PlantFiles has hundreds of Hydrangea entries and tons of information - here are some tips to track down what you're looking for:

1) The cultivar-finder for Hydrangeas lets you browse all cultivars alphabetically: http://davesgarden.com/pf/finder/index.php?sname=Hydrangeas&submit=submit

2) The Advanced Search lets you find Hydrangeas that meet your specifications (flower color, height, hardiness, etc.)
http://davesgarden.com/pf/advanced.php?sname=Plants (Note: You can - and should - skip past any detail sections that you don't care about.)

3) If we've missed a Hydrangea, here's a link to add a new entry: http://davesgarden.com/pf/add.php

4) Within any entry (one you added, or existing entries), you can add your own comment, photo and/or ZIP code report if it grows well in your garden! The screen shot below shows you where to look for the ZIP code field and the links to add an image or comment.

Finding a particular variety

1) PlantScout has several vendors that carry Hydrangeas. Here's a list of the results when searching for "Hydrangea": http://davesgarden.com/ps/search.php?search_text=Hydrangea&submit=Search

You can always search for a particular Hydrangea, too - here's an example of searching for 'Endless Summer': http://davesgarden.com/ps/search.php?search_text=Endless+Summer&submit=Search

Hint: Clicking on the company name in the second column will let you browse that company's entire PlantScout product list.

2) You may find advertised specials in our Classified Ads forum - be sure to check there for special deals and offers, many of which are just for DG members: http://davesgarden.com/forums/f/bulletins/
(Vendors or members with excess plants for sale: be sure to check out this cost-effective tool for advertising your products!)

3) The Garden Watchdog also has a section devoted to Hydrangea sources: http://davesgarden.com/gwd/advanced.php?category=106&submit=Go As you can see, using the pull-down list is the best way to find a category (see screenshot below to see how it works.)

P.S. When you've ordered from a company listed in the Watchdog, be sure to leave feedback - what you know helps others!
