For some reason, my image isn't posting, but the link works. It's a pretty spectacular sight. Totally no fuss. Barely water it. It's got all the right conditions, morning sun, afternoon shade. And, wow.
Beautiful! You're right, they need the right conditions to flourish, and you must be providing it, because they hardly ever look this good. Thanks for sharing.
Wow... absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.
Ok, I need details. How many and what type of ES? When did you plant them?
You should submit the photo to ES.. They might give you a prize of some kind!
If you've been a hydrangea forum follower for a few years...I'm the ES cheerleader. Bot them the first year, wiped out all the Eastern MA supply in the first year because of its promise. And I did talk to the original growers long before I got 'em. Talk about a motivated buyer.
It's done exactly what I wanted. Non-stop blooms from May to November. Don't hafta worry about winter bud-freeze. I can prune it down to nothing and I'll have a beautiful hedge the next year.
As I said, I rarely water it. For me, it's the perfect plant.
I might have 30 plants now and my lot is hydrangea-stuffed, lol. OH, and I've moved these plants multiple times, I mean multiple. Just iron-hardy.
And my house is now know as the Hydrangea House.
Thanks to all.
