My Hydrangea paniculata ‘Pee Gee’ is putting on quite a show. A couple of years ago I was about ready to give up on it because it was not blooming. To look at it now you would never know that it was a “problem child.” Perhaps it heard the conversation I had with my eleven year old non blooming Forsythia “Bloom or I am going to mow you down.” My Hydrangea has finally settled in and is sporting lots of blooms this year. About time. There is no hope for that darn old Forsythia..I really should mow it down or move it..
Up here in Minnesota we cannot grow very many Hydrangeas, ‘Annabelle’ and ‘Pee Gee’ are the most reliable. Forget the fancy Blue and Pink Lace caps and the Mop heads. Plain old white blooms..that is what we can grow the best:)
