Is there anyone that doesn’t like Hydrangeas? Don’t tell me if you don’t! They’re my very FAVORITE flowering shrub in the whole world!
I thought I’d share a few of my bushes that are in bloom. Some varieties aren’t in bloom yet.
Mostly the Oakleaf above and
Nikko Blue and Endless Summer Hydrangeas are in full bloom.
The neat thing about this border is that I propagated almost all of those Hydrangeas! I think it’s really easy to make more of these and it’s a great way to stretch your landscaping dollar as long as you have patience and don’t need/want an instant garden.
I’ve been working on this border for about 4 years and I have another little bush that I propagated that I’m going to move over here as soon as the blackberries that have creeped to the outside of the fence are finished!
Here’s I post I wrote last year - Blooms On A Budget that describes how to propagate them. You’ll see some of the same Hydrangeas in this post and see what a difference a year makes!
Then there are the Gardenias…!
I wish there was smell-a-vision for blogs! The scent in the backyard is just amazing because the Jasmine and the Gardenias are in bloom at the same time! Really just heavenly!
As always, thanks for spending some time here today!
