My first blooms- this little plant has been babied along in our desert heat, but I did get 3 blooms this first year after planting last summer.

Congratulations to both of you. I love the look of the blues and am impressed that the hydrangea does well in Arizona Summer Heat. They do well here too but they tend to wilt a little when the temps get to the 110s for days and days and days.... I can't complain. I would wilt a little if left outside in the middle of the summer too. Hee hee hee! I was just outside moving a rose and trying to plant a few plants that were still potted but ran into drip irrigation snafus that delayed all work until 11am. Tell you what.... In May over here, you cannot do yard work after 10-11am. Too darn hot. How is it like over in LA or AZ? I have to pack it in and leave it for another day or another weekend... whew!

Love the color ArizonaDee.Don't worry in a year or two your plant will start growing big.They grow slow because my done the same thing until this year and now they are booming.

I want to show a picture of my absolute favorite hydrangea-------an oakleaf called Harmony. It has been described by some as looking like a pile of mashed potatoes.

I have only heard of 2 places in the US where they are available (doesn't mean there aren't others)-------but, they are Wilkerson Mill in Ga. (they are on the internet) and Petals of the Past outside of Birmingham. Good luck--

Harmony is so pretty. My Oakleaf didn't make it through the winter. So sad. My climbing hydrangea is blooming for the first time. It's taken three years to bloom and still a small plant, maybe 3' only.

Harmony is just gorgeous! What variety is the climbing one pastime? It is lovely too.

I don't know what variety. I'm bad about tagging plants except my daylilies. I'm going to have to put something taller behind it. Discovered this morning there's a very long piece growing along the ground under the hostas. I hope I can get that piece of ornamental iron out without breaking the plant.

This is what my hydrangea looks like when the color fades.

TheRoseGirl, the photo taken in the 4:32pm post above would be very appropriate on July 4th; it has all three colors... red, white and blue!!!!
