I made a grievous error and planted two "Annabelle" in the small garden shown below
I will replace these 2 Annabelles with I am hoping are two other hydrangeas. Of course these replacement 'drangeas must be much more compact (4 feet tall max and more importantly of minimal width). They must not flop, have spectacular flowers and able to flourish in a location which is under a roof eave and face north...so not much direct sun.
I know of "Little Lime" (I did plant one of these in early August in another location so it is much too soon for me to say how nice this plant is or may be)..
And I have heard that "White Diamonds" is also compact.
