Finally, finally, my hydrangeas are blooming! It's already the middle of August, this is just getting silly!!!
My poor Quick Fire (the one further away) has lush green foliage but just a few blooms... but look at my Vanilla Strawberry (the closer one)! This one was much smaller than QF last year but this year, it has shown vigorous growth and there are many creamy, green blooms too:
I actually like these creamy, limey, green blooms more so than when they turn white and pink!
As for my Incrediballs, they have also grown vigorously as well. Now, the blooms are not huge, but I actually prefer it that way. These stems are amazing - even just after a major downpour, they will still be upright, holding the flower heads firmly upright! Here they are:
Here are the Incrediballs as seen from the fence:
As for my other hydrangeas, the Pinky Winky is full of buds but not quite ready to bloom yet.... the Little Limes are also very much behind. The Pee Gees that were planted last year in the front yard also are just showing some buds. Perhaps I can show you some pics later!
Of course, I had to S.P. that Bombshell.... that one was so promising but it just succumbed to our winter.... sigh!
Anyway, even though they are late, I am a huge hydrangea fan and I can't wait until they are all in full bloom!
