I love Hydrangeas

This beautiful plant is still in a pot. It has survived 6 years and is loaded with blooms. In February the association sent me a letter telling me to get rid of the dead plant in the pot. I informed them that it had stalks that looked dead but when new growth appeared I would trim it back and it would flourish. I don't think I will plant this one in the ground.

The one on the right I planted in the ground 2 years ago. It's huge but has very few blooms. The  association's landscapers cut it back at the end of the season. I have not been able to stop them or make them understand that I will trim it. 
What a difference.


  1. Wow! I love hydrangeas too! Yours are really beautiful! Here in Finland they don't grow very well... winters are too long!

  2. Your hydrangeas are beautiful, Carole! I got very annoyed, though, reading about your association's letter to you. Grrr! What do they know?? Glad you kept it. It obviously loves where you've placed it.


Thanks for stopping by. Comments are appreciated.
