Yes, it would be best to wait until late summer or early fall to plant your Strawberry Sundae Hydrangea.

Just be certain the ground is still warm so the roots can grow and get established before winter. Add compost when planting. Early spring will be a good time to fertilize. Look for a fertilizer with a high P (phosphorus) in the NPK ratio to help with growing flowers.

Thanks for writing!
