Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral harvissa On Jul 2, 2011, harvissa from Oak Park, IL wrote:

I've had this in the ground in my Oak Park, IL, garden for 5 years or so. Most years it hasn't bloomed at all or has had just one bloom. It seems to be hardy to zone 6, though we are zone 5. It's in a somewhat protected spot. I kept thinking I should pull it out, but didn't. This year it has many flowers at last! They are a charming intense mauve-pink. The hydrangea is rather skimpy -- about 2 1/2 feet tall and about as wide. All in all, I'd say they are difficult to grow in our region, but might do ok with a LOT of patience.
