Internet Sales

Our hydrangea growing operation will continue via internet sales through our website. It became the best growth sector of our business in 2013 and we believe this is the way for us to continue to offer our unique collection of recent and vintage hydrangea varieties to a major portion of the hydrangea growing areas of our country.

While we have ‘officially’ moved into our new location, the total move will be a major work in progress effort for us in 2014 – modifying our new property, implementing a significant number of plant relocations, and installing new propagation and growing facilities. Back in April we felt we would be able to offer a limited number of plants by September 1st. Unfortunately, our transition progress has been slower than anticipated and we will not be in a shipping mode until May 2015. See our August newsletter for more details.

Despite the current delays, our commitment remains unchanged – to continue to offer only those varieties – many of them unique to Hydrangea Farm - that have demonstrated superior in-ground hardiness and flowering capability in our trials. Our ‘catalog’ is our website. You should be able to print any and all pages – to keep a copy of our plant list or share with a friend who doesn’t order online. And we’re happy to accept mail and phone orders. Please contact us for a hardcopy Plant List and Order Form or to place an order.

The Species and Varieties We Offer (View All)


Macrophyllas

Macrophyllas account for over 75% of our volume and are the featured species in our Retail and Internet offerings. Nantucket is very mophead-centric with rich blues of all shades and whites being the most popular. Lace cap varieties are somewhat out of favor at the moment locally but we still offer some excellent selections. Macrophylla hybridizing has been center stage and a number of the newer varieties that have demonstrated good landscape performance are available.

Serratas

Serratas are close cousins of the ‘macs’. Plant size is typically smaller and more delicate in appearance - but the species is more cold hardy. The dominant bloom form is lace cap and in shaded settings these are very pleasing plants. We do like a couple of stand-out varieties that we hope to offer later this summer.

Arborescens

Arborescens is one of the two species native to the US. It is exceptionally cold hardy – to zone 4 – and flowers on new wood. These plants will bloom reliably every year – they are truly bullet-proof. We offer several superior varieties at the Farm - the widely popular Annabelle, the recent intro Incrediball, the smaller Bounty and Ryan Gainey cultivars, and the very lovely new pink hybrids Invincibelle Spirit and Bella Anna. Ryan Gainey and Incrediball are available now on our website.

Paniculatas

Paniculatas are also super cold hardy and very strong growers. They too bloom on new wood so consistent flowering is assured. Our internet list includes several of the newest introductions – Limelight, Quick Fire, Pinky Winky, and Phantom. These are excellent plants for the coldest climes providing reliable blooming despite winter severity.

Quercifolias

Quercifolias are the other native American species (we know you knew that - -). The ‘oak leaf’ family is also reasonably cold hardy but does need some summer heat to flower well. These are excellent low maintenance background plants for the woody, half shade garden areas. Our major offering is Snowflake, with its truly superb panicle bloom form composed entirely of multi-tiered sterile florets. A large, mature specimen is a truly spectacular plant!

Anomalas

Anomalas – the climbers - are a generally less well known species, except here on Nantucket where several outstanding petiolaris specimens exist mainly in in-town gardens. Cold hardy and very long lived, this species has large open lace-cap blooms that develop early and last only briefly. Nevertheless, it is an excellent specimen plant best grown for its excellent climbing habit, fine leaf texture, and interesting multicolored bark. We are currently building inventory for a web release in September.
