I finally got pictures of the wild hydrangea flowers of the mama plant. My baby one has not bloomed yet, but than again it is a baby.

My baby wild hydrangea is growing well. I did pinch it as it got real rangy looking now I'll wait for spring and flowers. Found two more wild hydrangeas and got them planted. Will be interesting to see if they are all three the same color.

My wild hydrangea is setting flowers. I am so excited and biting my finger nails to the bone watching.

My wild hydrangea is looking so good. I also have a baby one about 12in tall that I thought I had lost.

If your wild hydrangea are anything like mine, give them time and they will become monsters rather quickly if they are planted in a place they like. I have one that I inherited with the house that I purchased in 2003. I've cut it back severely in the fall because it threatens to take over a corner of my patio. Even with the severe prune, it always grows to about 4 feet the next year. A couple of branches touched the ground and a friend told me to cover them with soil or mulch so that it would create another plant. I have successfully gotten two plants from the original doing this much to my surprise as I am generally not good at propagation. When I first moved to the home I had no idea what type of hydrangea it was and I really didn't appreciate it as I was used to the macrophyllas. Now I've learned to appreciate it for what it is and it has become one of my favorites in my garden. Even when not blooming it is a lush shrub with dark green foliage that is never bothered by pests or disease. I can always count on this shrub hosting the latest batch of bunnies under it each year. It seems the bunnies love it as much as I do.

The wild hydrangra is growing quite well. I had gotten a real small one and brought it to Calif with me. I now have it in a large pot and will enjoy watching it grow. The larger one I left in Kentucky and it is doing well. I love the small delicate flowers
