Are these plants at the my new house hydrangeas?
Since I don't know how to post pictures on this forum, you are going to have to trust my description. I have two potted mophead hydrangeas that are growing beautifully. I have 4 plants in the ground at my new home that I hope are hydrangeas. The leaves look nearly identical to those of my potted ones. The new stems growing from the ground are speckled like the new growth on my potted ones as well. BUT, my potted plants are growing from one central old wood stem. The plants in the ground are alot of separate old stems, with new buds coming out on them. There are also new stems coming directly from the ground, and some budding off old stems. In other words, there is no central old wood stem in the ground. Can anyone tell me if it is possible that my plants in the ground are hydrangeas, even though there is no central old wood stem?
