A friend gave me perhaps a half dozen hydrangea two years ago to anchor a front corner of my house. They have grown into a beautiful mass with hundreds of blossoms. Apparently the location offers the perfect soil, the perfect sunlight.
If I could have only one kind of plant in my garden…Hydrangea’s!
I have been adding a few each year in the garden.
How lovely to receive them as gifts!
What a beautiful sight when they are in bloom! Off topic..any word on publication release yet? So hard to wait, isn’t it!
I added 3 Hydrangea dwarf standard trees this last Spring, hoping they endure the Winter!
On the magazine story: Just last week Field Editor, Kate Carter Frederick and I chatted on the phone,emailed and completed the interviews for the article! She is such an amazing woman that I feel privileged to call “friend”.
Everything is in the hands of the Art Director and Editor….but still believe it to be the early Fall addition, which hits the stands Aug 1.
So hard to wait! Thanks so much for being excited about it with me…means a lot to me!
Co-incides with Waseca Garden Tour..should have the magazine article featured in the paper that week!
I love hydrangeas. They don’t really survive well in Denver but my mother has a ton in NJ.
Thank you for stopping by my little garden blog! I love the East Coast, and always love all the Hydrangea growing out there.
Had the pleasure of vacation in Maine when all the Hydrangea’s were at their peak! Beautiful!
I love hydrangeas, too! I think I must have about 8 variates spanning about four species? They have always been part of our gardens here in North Carolina.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Oh to live a few Zones warmer! Jealous of you!
That’s so lovely! It almost doesn’t look real.
This particular flower head was so large! Love the many shades of white and cream.
Beautiful! Hydrangeas grow beautifully in my area, but they do take a lot of water and we are hot in the summer. No matter how much I try to shift my garden to mostly drought-tolerant plants, I don’t think I can eliminate all hydrangeas. They are just so rewarding!
I know, we had a wet Spring last year, followed by drought conditions…I could not put down enough water last year….and I was watering from before Sunrise to after Sunset…I did lose one Hydrangea in a area away from the main garden. If I had to pick only one thing to grow in my garden…I wouldn’t even have to hesitate, Hydrangea. Luckily I don’t have to pick though!
