Hydrangeas are oh so pretty! I LOVE them... and every year I wait anxiously for my hydrangea bushes to bloom... and pretty much every year for about 6 years they have never bloomed except for once along the way. I have an extreme case of hydrangea envy when I see them blooming so beautifully in my neighbors yards. I was thinking I needed to give them some time to establish, so I just let them be. Now I am finally tired of waiting so I am going to move them to a new location. I think it may be because I have them planted under a tree and I read that the tree will try to steal all of the nutrients from the hydrangea plant and cause them not to flower. I don't know... that is my best guess?
So anyway, I bought myself a few new bushes to add to my yard this year... I am thinking if I add a few friends maybe they will be happier. lol! Two of the new bushes are called All Summer Beauty. I can't wait to see these next year because they are supposed to be easy to grow and flower on the new and old wood and continue flowering from summer to fall. Anyone out there have this variety?
I was able to gather an armfull of hydrangeas from the bushes I bought this year. I had a little fun with them snapping away... I am trying to play with the settings on my camera and teach myself how to use photoshop actions. So there may be alot of photos but I couldn't narrow them down... hope you like them!
Happy Hydrangea picking! xo Heather
