If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily.

Wild Hydrangea is a must-have for most gardens in zones 4-9, the hydrangea arborescens or "wild hydrangea" is a crowd pleaser for people and beneficial insects.
Known to draw in butterflies and other pollinators, this woody, a perennial shrub is a helpmate to neighboring plants. The large, florist quality blooms are stunning in cut flower arrangements and, also, dry beautifully for extended enjoyment. Blooms can be expected sometime in June and continue their display through August. Wild hydrangea flowers start out with a greenish hue and then mature to beautiful white rounded bunches of tiny, four petal blooms that sit on top of tall, silvery brown cane stems. Underneath the white mounds lie medium sized dark green leaves, oval-shaped with serrated edged. Mature shrubs will reach about 3 to 6 feet tall and around 4 to 6 feet wide.
The wild hydrangea plant blooms on new growth which makes it perfect for areas with harsh winters.
In very early spring, stems should be pruned back to just above ground level to make room for the new growth. Any suckers that protrude out can be pruned off to keep the original plant shape, or they can be allowed to grow to fill in areas as desired. Wild hydrangea flourishes in gardens with soil that is slightly acidic and is moist with good drainage. A little mulch in the spring, or after planting, will help to keep the moisture levels pleasant; while also assisting with soil temperature and weed control.
Wild hydrangea love morning sun, but do best with a little shade during the hottest parts of the day.
During dry spells, the wild hydrangea will benefit from little extra water, but the overall care of the plant is minimal, making it a beautiful choice.
