Mother's Day Hydrangeas:
A Spring Guide to the
Perfect Garden Gift

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and a hydrangea can make a perfect gift for any mother in your life.

Giving an Endless Summer® hydrangea to your loved ones means not only a season of beautiful color, but multiple years of reblooming beauty. We’ve put together the ultimate shopping guide to make sure you get the perfect hydrangea for your mother!

Before we get started, it’s important to know the difference between gift and garden hydrangeas. Gift hydrangeas can often be found at supermarkets during springtime and are not able to survive being planted in the ground.
