So Glad I Have a Corner
I know it sounds silly, but I've been dithering for years about a certain northwest corner of my house that needed... something. Finally, the folks in the Lanscaping forum explained I needed a tallish, widish shrub planted on the corner of the house to blend the house into the rest of the landscape.
They told me this months ago and I am still dithering, because I just can't make myself plant yet another evergreen at the foundation of my house.
I have been discovering hydrangeas this summer (can't wait to get a Preziosa next spring), but could not find anything that would work in this corner and provide some contrast to my cream colored house.
But today I stumbled across something that is supposed to be available next spring called "Vanilla Strawberry".
It's supposed to be available in Europe and coming to the USA next spring. Has anyone ever heard of this variety? I am very curious because if it looks as good in person as it does in the picture, then my landscape dithering will be done.
I can just picture this with a skirt of Rozanne geranium. That would be worth the wait.
