flowers turning crispy
Until now, this has been a banner year for my hydrangea. But this heat wave has done them in despite my watering as much as possible. The Nikkos were gorgeous 4 days ago, I have 14 of them, and this was the best blooming year for them. They are now crispy and will need to have the flowers cut off. The endless summers are wilted beyond a comeback and will need to be cut as well. The Limelights, Annabelles and Incrediballs are holding up much better. Invincibelles have faded to ugliness and tardivas not blooming yet. My one preziosa is badly wilted. My hedge of lacecaps is sad looking but was almost done anyway. How are everyone else's holding up?
