That’s so beautiful, right Kerry what’s your secret? 😂😂 Last year mine looked awful but it flowered quite well , this year it looks even worse, hardly any flowers and the leaves look pale and sickly. Taking the weather into account I’m not sure if it’s lacking in something, has a pest attacking it or a fungal problem. It’s on death row if it doesn’t improve I’m seriously thinking of digging it up. Mind you I’ve been saying that for a while now 😂😂🤔

Fabulous & lush too. Even up here mine are looking a bit frazzled.

@hkyfvr thanks Diane 😃 it does seem happy in the shade of the rhododendron. Hopefully yours is storing energy for an abundance of flowers next year 😁

@gjones @vegandmore thanks ladies 😄 thought it had stopped flowering and then it kicked off again 😜 quite like the mix of old & new blooms 😋

@KOutdoors @lilybee thank you both 😁 I wish I knew what’s made it do so well so I could try it with a couple that didn’t bother to flower at all 😂 it’s in pretty much full shade and I left it until mid-May before pruning it. Other than that they’re just left to do what they do 😜

@jeatacake don’t zoom in or you’ll see the frazzled leaves on this one 🙈😂 the warm wind seems to have done the most damage. Dries them out so much faster 😞

Very welcome Kerry. Mine is near my rhododendron too. I am sure it will bloom well next year as long as I do not prune it. 😁🤞🤞

Very welcome. I guess the soil made it change colour. My endless summer hydrangea did not flower at all this summer. It is one that flowers on both old wood and from the crown. I must have over pruned it last year. No pruning this year. The foliage looks good though. 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️

@hkyfvr think so. I never use acidic soil but probably should 😜 oh no, that’s such a shame 😞 some hydrangeas I find difficult to time right when pruning. Leaving it a year is a good idea, especially with lots of good growth 😁

My soil is very alkaline. I think this hydrangea will come back even more beautiful next year. I saw a video where an expert said this particular one (summer crush) is the most reliable bloomer of the macrophyll mop head hydrangeas. Mine broke the rule I guess. 🤔🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️

@hkyfvr sounds like you got a good one! Maybe it’s just had a tough winter and building up for a flower explosion next year 😁

Always welcome. I love this colour. If you make the soil more acidic it may turn blue again. 🤷‍♀️

@hkyfvr plant twins 💗💗 I know some can change depending on soil acidity so I wonder if the soil has changed because of all the rain 🤔

That sounds possible. Maybe the acid in the rain. Pink is taking over the garden it seems. 🤣🤣💗💕🌸

@gjones the colours are adorable aren’t they 😍 it’s starting to darken already, some flowers are a real deep blue now. But was only given it a week ago so not quite sure how it’ll end up and there was no variety on the pot so will be a nice surprise to see how it progresses 😁
