replace Snow Queen with Tuff Stuff/Tiny Tuff Stuff?

Jen832(5b)February 25, 2014

The last two winters have done a number on my 3-year old Snow Queen (H. quercifolia). Last winter: very warm (60 degrees), no snow, then a very late hard freeze -- so no flowers. This winter: temps to -20 at several points, windchill to -30 and below, PLUS rabbits eating the old wood!

I give up on the never-blooming Snow Queen. Given the wildly fluctuating climate, should I consider replacing it with Tuff Stuff or Tiny Tuff Stuff, which blooms on old and new wood? I'm not sure I have room in that spot for the leggy Incrediball (two of which, in my front yard, have handled the insane weather just fine).

Advice appreciated!

Try it but rabbits will gnaw on other hydrangeas as well. You might put a cage around it to keep them at bay.
