Hydrangea:shrub
with clusters of white or tinted blooms.

These flowers remind me of both of my
Grandmother's!

Yesterday, I bought my first Hydrangea plant and took this picture. I will plant it in a big clay
pot for now so I can enjoy it in the patio area of our backyard. Can't wait for more blooms of clusters!

I love your pink hydrangeas. I have the Nikko Blue and they are just about to bloom.

Maryjane, I love Hydrangeas and your pink one is just gorgeous. I have quite a few of them in my yard. They are really easy to grow. I will show you in the winter how you can take shoots off of this plant and make more!
Love, Ann

These are beautiful!
They are also so beautiful, when dried! They can be used just everywhere. So lovely on a Christmas tree!

Hydrangeas are my very favorite old time flower. My sister blessed me with 2 tiny bushes last spring. And this year I can already see the blooms forming. I'm so excited to see them bloom! Enjoy yours!

Blessings,

MaryJane--
Guess what I just found?!?!?
On MaryJane's Farmgirl website -- I saw on page 62 (at the very bottom) of the "Garden Gate" section .... a bunch of information on hydrangea's.
Not sure if you needed any advice, but I thought of you, immediately!
Hope this is of some help?
Blessings,
Julie
