I have been adding potted Hydrangeas to my courtyard. Daughter Shelli gave me my second beautiful plant a couple weeks ago. Yesterday while Hubby and I were at Lowe's I let out a HUGE GASP when I saw this 17" across giant beauty among "others" in the same container! There was no way I was going to leave Lowe's without it!!! Hubby smiled and of course nodded his head (I would have bought it even if there was not a nod! LOL! Girls gotta have some things!) Excuse my garden worn hands but I wanted you to see the comparison to my hand. I planted it in a vintage pot.
