Thanks Kerry 👍 but it's such a slow growing plant. Is yours slow too? @kez

@jeatacake mine is in its 3rd year now and is only just starting to look like a proper hydrangea. Think it had one flower head last year and this year it’s covered! It is slow though but does seem to last a lot longer than the others 😋

This is the best of 3 flower heads it has. I think it had 2 last year. The plant is a good 4 or 5 years old now & is still no more than a foot high though, even though it's in the ground 😕 @kez001uk

@jeatacake oh mine isn’t very big. It’s in a 40cm pot and I’d say the plant is probably about 50-60 cm wide. Height, saying a foot and a half is being generous. I just assumed it was a more compact variety 🤔

Maybe it is a small variety? 🤔 No one told me that when I bought it!😑
