Do I really have Little Lamb? (1 pic)
This hydrangea, purchased as Little Lamb, got cut to the ground by a rabbit right after planting last year. It came back (and I fenced it), but didn't have a chance to bloom until now.
As I understand it, Little Lamb's individual flowers are smaller than other paniculatas, and the panicles are smaller, too, "gamboling atop the plant." Well, my Little Lamb has produced one 12" panicle, presently lying on the ground. Its flowers are every bit as large as Limelight's.
I'm guessing it's a genuine Little Lamb that put all of its initial energy into one large bloom, but will revert to more normal behavior at some point. What do you think?
