Home Depot has them in here in Calhoun Ga zone 7 and I can't find a single thing on them. Ever heard of them?

Lucky you, prettypetals. I went by HD either 1-2 weeks ago and there were no hydrangeas for sale yet. Lowes had some generic ones though called "Red hydrangea" (oh Lord, how original was that! Hee hee hee!). What seems to be the claim to fame of these two that you saw? Are they mopheads, lacecaps, paniculatas, etc? I looked on the internet and did not find info.

I'm sorry. They are mopheads!! They were still on racks packed up so I couldn't look at them to good. Plan on going back tomorrow to look again and if not unpacked yet I will do it myself like I've done plenty of times before!!!

I just bought a Sugar and Spice from HD. I called the nursery first and
they confirmed it was a re-bloomer.They did not give me
another name.
I've compared the flower with a Forever and Ever Together
I have in a pot and it seems to be the same. So that is what I think it is. Leaves look the same too.

Apparently HD is buying plants from growers who have licences to propagate, but is selling them under "made up" names. I'm amused they're not doing this in my area (yet).

A big fail for the confusion factor, though... *shakes head*
