I was very recently bitten by the Hydrangea bug ... have for the first time last season, been reading and asking ??? in the Hydrangea Forum (many threads I read are of different zones that do not always apply to our specific Z and conditions - however, have learned so much from and am quite GRATEFUL.
Only Ironbelly responded to ?? I posted here last season. I wonder if anyone else would be interested in comparing notes and experiences? HD, Lowes and other garden centers now, have been carrying such age-old garden beauties. I planted, recommended hardy ones, this past 2 seasons and would like to expand.
I own a 16y/o (Mom's Day -florist) Nikko, that bloomed only intermitently & scantily with no serious over-wintering efforts. Jury is still out on this past Winter's efforts - she will be kept wrapped for a while longer this Spring and verdict will come down in late Spring ... I'm keeping my fngrs xx'd
Will appreciate responses from our area!
