Leuchtfeuer hydrangea

I picked this pot up from Lowes today. The tag says Leuchtfeuer but it looks like two different plants.

How curious. I looked and found it is supposed to be a mophead so I agree that it is two plants. And for the price of one, it is quite a deal!

Thanks Luis. There seems to be two stems in the pot but that was the case with the other pots at Lowes that didnt have two different looking plants. I know I shouldn't be buying plants in the heat of summer (other than clearance). I will probably pot it up and put it someplace where I see it everyday so I don't forget to water it.

It is probably a good thing that you separated the two plants now. If you let them keep growing together then the roots can mix and twine and it would be a mess trying to separate.

I know what you mean about not buying plants in the heat of the summer. I rarely do it but for some reason, I bought one that has been suffering in the 100-degree weather. I should have left it in the pot instead of planting it. Now I have to go ck it often and it is not where I can easily spot check it.
