Hydrangeas for sale!!

Jensen Nursery has those Hydrangeas you have been thinking about...
You must have seen those shrubby plants with huge flower structures – some the size of a small child’s head; or you always wondered where that friend of yours got that beautiful dried flower arrangement.  Look no further than besides Jensen’s main building – it’s the Hydrangea.
Remember that great article on Hydrangeas in the Winnipeg Free Press back in the early spring?  (http://homes.winnipegfreepress.com/winnipeg-real-estate-articles/renovation-design/GARDENING-Beautiful-bloomers/id-2733/)
Colleen Zacharias astutely summarized that all Hydrangeas are not created equal.  Some are needing a strategic trim in the spring to flower (Hydrangea arborescens c.v.), while others can take a decapitation almost to the ground (Hydrangea paniculata c.v.).  And remember:  some of this pruning may be done by your furry little garden friend, the rabbit – so be mindful of the type you want and the effort of protection (both by herbivores and deep cold snaps) that you are willing to provide.
Jensen’s still has the following varieties, so be sure to go to the website to check-out these beauties (http://plants.jensennursery.com/11050012):
