@DeborahBanks they’re so worth having! You gotta get one 😛 first year I had mine it was pointless quite frankly 😂 looked like the leaves were rotting off constantly. But once I moved it into a sunnier position (now in full sun) it has flowered like mad the past 2 years. I’ll tag you on insta so you can see how big it is this year 💚💗
@rainbowgardener you have a good son there! 😉 what’s worked for mine is having it in the sun. Never did well in shade but it’s huge and covered in flowers the past 2 years since it was moved. Looks pointless for the first few months but they’ll just explode next summer 💚💗
Had a few days resting up & buying presents to take home & all that. Off to Bangkok's Botanical Gardens again today as they're having a flower show. Went to one there a few years ago & it was amazing, so expect a few photos later! 😁 @sharonhayden
@jeatacake most of the big leaves are gone but 3 of my 5 hydrangeas have lots of new growth. I guess frost will kill that off over winter though. Only had a couple of very slight frosts here so far. Yours will come back with a vengeance though 😛
@auricula thanks Elise ☺️ this is it’s second summer, first time it’s flowered though. Only had one bloom too but it’s lasted and lasted, still full of colour. Hope yours flowers next year, you’ll love it 😍
@gjones thank you mr gjones 😁😁😁 it’s really unusual and always catches your eye wherever you are in my garden. I just hope it has more than one flower cluster next year 🙏🏼 a whole plant like this would be stunning!
@gjones from what I remember the outer edge stays lime, the mid-leaf turns pink and the very centre is blue/purple. This one hasn’t flowered for me before so whether it actually goes that way I can’t be sure. But I’m really hoping so 😁
