Bobo is a spectacular hydrangea for my garden. It has been healthy in its two years here.
It certainly is a blooming fool. Was a bit worried by introduction pictures as I thought it may look a little odd if covered with that many flowers. Bobo is covered with bloom, yet looks fabulous. Will be getting more of this one. It's about 24" high x 30" wide at end of second year.
