Finally. This year the hydrangeas in my house were MINE. From my plants. Granted this bunch is pretty much all the blooms I had but still. I didn't have to go to anyone else and beg to cut their flowers.
I wasn't going to cut the blooms on mine this year since I just planted them. But then friend who knows his stuff when it comes to plants (he should he has a degree in agriculture!) said they would grow better structurally and take less water if we trimmed them.
So the blooms came inside.
I have 8 'Annabelle' variety hydrangeas. 6 are 'Incrediball' which gets bigger blooms than even the heirloom 'Annabelles'. And 2 are the 'Invicibelle' which is the Annabelle variety that is pink, delicate and absolutely lovely. Now I need some 'Limelights':)
