After 3 years, I'm giving up and removing this hydrangea! While the flower blooms are lovely, the stems are weak and brittle and aren't able to support the heavy flowers. Because of it's short height, most of the plant then ends up lying on the ground. Attempts to support the stems usually result in broken stems. Cutting the plant back severely in the fall only results in fewer blooms the following spring.

Newly planted on the north side of my North Texas home. Will comment again when it has survived a north Texas summer!
