Hydrangea paniculata Tardiva question
I've had this shrub (3 of them, actually) for about 10 years; or maybe closer to 15, I can't remember when we planted that area of the garden. This year I've located and dug up 3 out of about 6 volunteers that have popped up around the garden during this time, and I'm planning to give them to some gardening friends.
Is there any reason to worry that these will not come true from seed? They're budding up and seem very much like the parents. These friends know what my plants look like, and I don't want them to be disappointed a few years down the road if the babies turn out to be really different from my plants.
I can't find anything about the development of Tardiva on line, but I suppose it can't be a hybrid, since its name is paniculata.
Has anyone else grown these from seed?
