Hydrangeas are now my favorite plants. I'm getting tired of lilacs becase they are in bloom for a relatively short time and are not that exciting the rest of the year. Hydrangeas are in bloom for almost 2 months. I've decided to put in a new Hydrangea bed with one each of my pet ones: these are the ones with large open panicles with lots of tiny true florets, not only the larger, showy sterile florets. Pee Gee and Limelight, showy as they are are not my favorite- I find them a little vulgar. As this week end I am to have two days off from the nursery for the first time since April, I'm planting Hydrangeas.
