This year is all about hydrangeas. I am determined to have them blooming along the porch like this...
Aren't they the perfect cottage flower? Last year I tried a couple different varieties in the front yard with no luck, they needed so much water and still wilted in the sun. I transplanted them to go on either side of the playhouse since there is some shade from the redbud tree.
After doing a little research I found a brand new shrub called Little Lime hydrangea. They are the dwarf form of the popular Limelight hydrangea.
They will grow to be three to five feet tall and wide and will fit into a small space like mine.
They are drought tolerant, can handle full sun and are the perfect cut Flower.
I planted three along the porch and can't wait for them to cover this area with blooms.
So far so good....I will keep you posted when they bloom this summer. Fingers crossed!
