It was the same variety as shown below.
A big pink tub filled with an enormous plant of pink hydrangea's. A parting gift from my quilting lady's.
When I married we had no hydrangea's in our garden for a good many years.
Since rearanging our garden we have lots in lots of types and colours.
A new variety for me. The flowers are a kind of purple/red and it has big heads of flowers. I think they will dry up most beautiful in autumm.
I can't keep blue hydrangea's very well. They all turn pink or lilac. These where support to be blue mopheads.The purest white. I planted these in big tubs too. Don't know if that is a good idea when it gets cold.I don't like lacecaps as much als mopheads but these are kind of niceThe Annabelle's are enormous this year. Flowerheads as big as 30 cm / 12 " across. But when it rains the stems break because of the heavynes of the flowerheads. So sad. But up to now we have been lucky and there has not been to much damage.I love this variety. The softest pink and something between a mophead and a lacecap.
There are tree varieties missing. A very pale blue one that is supposed to flower all summer and a very special one with very dark leaves and white flowers trimmed with pink/orange. But these have not done so well. We have had a very warm June and I planted them in sunny place. It was a place that is too hot for them. I need to find another spot.
We also have a lot of blue lacecaps,I think they are calles Blue Moon, but they have not done eather this year and I don't like them at all. Hydrangea's should be blowsy and fat and this variety is nothing like that.
See you next week for the next Tree or more.
