Bobo is engulfed by large white flowers in summer. The flowers are held upright on strong stems and continue to grow and lengthen as they bloom. As blooms age, they turn pink. It is compact and dwarf in habit, and the flowers cover every inch of the plant right down to the ground.

Bobo reaches 30-36 inches tall and wide at maturity, it is hardy in zones 3-8. Plant in partial to full sun in northern climates and part sun (4+ hours daily) in southern climates. Fertilize with Proven Winners Continuous Release Plant food in spring and mid-summer. Prune in late winter/early spring by cutting back the plant by 1/3 its total height. 

Our shrub 3-pack includes an auger! An auger is the best tool for digging holes for small plants, digging in clay soil, loosening soil, weeding, bulb planting, and more. Hex end prevents slippage & tightly grips drill-head for easy tilling. 

  • 8.5 in long and 1.5 in wide (rod is ½ cm thick) 
  • 3/8" bit fits almost every handheld drill 

Auger Safety

  • Call Miss Dig #881 before using auger
  • Never use auger at high drill speed
  • Use clutch on drill to avoid drill spin or kickback
  • Serious injury may result in misuse of auger

1 gallon shrubs are 6-24 inches tall at shipment and quart shrubs are 5-8 inches tall at shipment depending on the season and plant.

    Bobo's are the best!

    I ordered three of the quart size Bobo Hydrangeas. They arrived quickly, were in excellent shape and are putting on new growth already. I had planted two Bobo Hydrangeas in my garden a couple years ago and love how they are so loaded with flowers you can hardly see any leaves!

    Very Pleased

    This was my first time using Proven Winners Direct. But not my first Proven Winners plant! My yard is full of your wonderful plants of all shapes and sizes. Love my baby Bobo hydrangea. Wanted a small plant that can grow into its new home. It’s in great condition and seems as happy as I am. ~Thank You

    My experience with proven winners was really exceptional. My first order came in dead but when I reached out to them they immediately replaced them. The new ones look amazing and I highly recommend Proven Winners.

    Good shape

    The pkg came very well packed and the plant was in need of water but in very good shape and in bloom

    My issue is with shipping. My order was scheduled originally to arrive on a Thursday, but did not arrive until the following Monday. 4 extra days of sitting on a truck in the hot Mississippi summer was not good on the plants. At this time they appear to be in shock and are losing foliage. I have them in a sheltered spot and am babying them hoping they recover.

    Thank you for sharing this with us, Pattie. This should not have happened. We have been shifting our shipping schedule to ensure plants are not stuck in a truck in this heat. Please know your plants are 100% guaranteed. Most of the time, with a little TLC, the plant's genetics are strong enough to survive, but if not, please let us know so we can replace them for you at no cost. Also, we never ask for customers to return plants to us :) We only ever ask for a photo of the plant for a replacement to be sent.

    Beautiful plants

    I expected bare root plants but I received plants like I would have purchased from my nursery. The plants arrived with blooms and were very healthy. I was so pleased I placed a second order a few weeks later. I will definitely purchase again.

    Excited, but 50% success

    I loved the idea of having two new plants for the gardenscape around my home. Both arrived with full blooms, however, one of the plants had lost 90% of its leaves laying in the box. I watered, fertilized and that one plant is not thriving and has all but 1 leaf and no new growth. I have requested assistance but have been told to wait until it fully dies before any reimbursement or replacement will take place. I am very disappointed with that.

    I'm sorry for the confusion. We will absolutely send you a replacement. I didn't realize how bad your Bobo was. We know our plants often bounce back (especially having to recover from this crazy heatwave we're experiencing) but we want our customers to be happy, that's #1. Thanks for sharing this with us so we can improve our customer service response and so we can change this experience for you :) We'll be calling today.

    Lovely plant

    The Bobo was in pretty good shape, just a few dead leaves. But I ordered a tid bit I think was the name. No name tag or instructions and the poor plant was pretty sad shape lots of dead leaves and dry I have cute it back and I think it will be ok. The shipping is just to slow right now.

    Love my Bo Bo’s.

    The first one arrived in beautiful shape on a hot Friday morning. Lovely flowers. The second one had a rough weekend. It was left in the Fed Ex truck over the weekend. It was delivered Monday morning. It did not have any leaves and the flowers were dead. I noticed there was still green around the bud areas. So I trimmed it up and planted it. I will now keep it watered and hope for the best.
