I was in walmart last week.seen this awesome variegated hydrangea.all the tag said was peegee.I've been surfing here for over an hour looking up info.I'm not getting much on pictures to show.I did run into an image on bluestone thats "mariessi"That could possibly be what I seen.It was in a 3 gallon pot and about 30 inches tall and full of blooms and was $17.89.I've made my SIL aware that shes routeing him to walmart the 20th and doing her best to have him purchase a pair& to convinvce him i'm worth it.

If someone knows a latin name for it...maybe i'll have better luck their.please shout it out!

and....does anyone grow any variegated HYDRANGEAS?

I didn't think it was a peegee. I've had one for 3 years. Bought it at a nursery, about a foot and a half tall for $12, said mariessi on the tag. Never has bloomed. frown It is in morning filtered sun. It wilts in the heat no matter how wet the ground is. Poor thing. Hope you have better luck with it.

I wasn't sure it was a peegee.its what the tag says....and tags DO lie sometimes.

It resembles mariessi,but could be variety variegata<might be off a few letters>.The mariessi needs morning sun afternoon shade.I kinda left off searching on this.but have plans of going back to snap a picture of it in walmart.....& I still want a pair of them.

The white variegation on the leaves stands out.I've seen some pics of some white with cream variegation while searching.I was digging today& wandering in the woods(nice ferns...grabbed a few JIP& the seeds that were red)I did read that can still change the blooms color like the others.

Especially at walmart! I ended up with different colored rose bushes than I planned on because I had to rely on the tag.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help, though...post a pic if you get one!

I've been back($$less too).
Its Mariessi.They have 1 gallon pots and the 3 gallon pots.They've moved the large ones to full sun outside the gate onto sidewalk and look about cooked and blossomless now.so took no picture.They have 3 tags on the pots.is the plastic card with peegee hydrangea hanging on pot.(the one I seen that day)and is a poke down one with proper name&grow info& picture and is from bluestone.and is a sticker for scanning with Mariessi HYD.
The 1 gallons ar $5.95 online with /bluestone.I'll order 2 online.They don't ship 3 gallon ones,but they said the 1 gallons are shipped bareroot.I figure they should look better than walmarts.I should have bought day I seen them,they looked TONS better.
