My Annabelle Hydrangea is doing beautifully this year. The brush has grown up around it so it is sheltered from the sun.
The blooms are stunning, and quite large.
She has gone visiting from the area where I first planted her. She must be finding her comfortable place. In a few more years she may be a hedge.
I love Hydrangeas. They are one of my favorite non yellow flowers. I envy anyone that can grow the lace capped ones or the ones that are colorful. I hear that there is a pink one that might grow this far north.
I have the perfect spot. My Pee Gee Hydrangea that was a real rock star in the front yard..died. It began to leaf out last spring and then it just croaked. I told Far Guy to rip it out of the ground..he did and said that something had dug underneath it and hollowed out a spot under the crown..perhaps a hungry vole?
This was taken about a year ago, Chance and my cute little Pee Gee Hydrangea.
Chance doesn’t dig. He is really good about staying out of my plants..except if someone throws a ball..or if a chipmunk runs through:)
