Dormancy Notice: This plant, like many others, enters dormancy or semi-dormancy in the late fall through early spring. *THIS PLANT IS NOT DEAD. It is completely healthy but upon receiving the plant, you may notice it exhibits fewer leaves, discoloration, or complete leaf drop. This is normal and essential to the plant's health. In fact, planting during dormancy promotes root growth, giving your plant a better start for spring, when new foliage will begin to grow.
Hydrangea Munchkin is an exceptional cultivar introduced by the U.S. National Arboretum. They are fast-growing but remain in a compact form at maturity, making them perfect for small residential landscapes.

What do the pot sizes mean?
Nursery pot sizes are called gallon sizes. You’ll see one-gallon, two-gallon, etc. This can be misleading to gardeners as a one-gallon pot would lead you to believe that the pot would hold one gallon of milk. This is not the case. Gallon is just a term of reference leftover from the days of nurseries growing plants in metal containers.
1-gallon (#1) pot for example, can hold 3 quarts of soil yet they are still considered a 1-gallon pot.
2-gallon (#2) pot holds about 1.5 gallons of soil
3-gallon (#3) pot holds about 2.9 gallons of soil
5-gallon (#5) pot holds about 4.6 gallons of soil
What you actually should be concerned with is the dimensions of the pot rather than capacity because let’s face it the size of the hole you dig is dependent on the dimensions, not the capacity.
These are approximate measurements and dimensions vary from manufacturer to manufacturer but all dimensions fall in the following specifications.
1 Gallon Pot - 6.5 to 7.5 inches wide by 7 to 8 inches deep
2 Gallon Pot - 8.5 to 9.5 inches wide by 8 to 9 inches deep
3 Gallon Pot - 10.5 to 11.5 inches wide by 9.5 to 10.5 inches deep
5 Gallon Pot - 12 to 13 inches wide by 11 to 12.5 inches deep
These are approximate measurements and they do vary from supplier to supplier.
