I saw this shrub at the nursery and would love to have one in my yard. However I was told that these aren't that hardy in our area.
Can you give me information about whether it is or not able to withstand our temperatures and winds? I live out in the country and get lots of west winds.

Lemon Zest Hydrangea is a Big Leaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla) and it blooms on new growth which develops on old wood. Your winter weather is too cold for these plants to retain any old wood. Without old wood, it will never bloom for you. Sorry!
