Hydrangea macrophylla 'Merritt's Supreme' is a compact and dense mophead hydrangea with huge, rounded flower heads, packed with intense, rich purple-blue to deep rosy-pink florets, depending on the soil pH. Blooming from mid summer to early fall, the bold blossoms are held aloft on thick stems. They turn a lovely plum color in the fall, further extending the season of interest of this plant. The foliage is dark green with large, glossy, serrated leaves. 'Merritt's Supreme' is perfect as a specimen or in small groupings, anywhere in the landscape that gets morning or filtered sun. Great cultivar for containers too! The size and longevity of the flowers make 'Merritt's Supreme' hydrangea an excellent choice for flower arrangements.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
