show off - the swan

uroboros5(Z5 Quebec)August 12, 2008

I just bought H. paniculata 'The Swan' and though a big plant already, if a little gangly. I hear that it becomes more handsome with age, but I googled for pictures and I don't believe I'm seeing any mature ones.

If you have this Hydrangea, what does it look like in your garden? And I'd loooooooooove to see pictures.

Thanks ahead!

I have a first year one but it is still an ugly duckling.

If you googled I'm sure you found it, but this one looks fairly good sized...

I'm very disappointed with the plant habit and foliage.

The plants I have seen have terrific, unique flowers. Unfortunately, H. paniculatas are ugly plants out of bloom.

I purchased mine from Bluestone Perennials last year, so it was tiny, tiny. Here is a picture of it taken recently. Still small, but blooming nicely. Please ignore all the weeds under the porch, we need to put down fabric and stones.
