My Early Birthday Surprise!
So Terry tells me he knows what he's getting me for my birthday and TRIED to order it and inlisted Mary's help, then looked online to order and got even more confused about what exactly to get. So he just HAD to tell me! He wanted to buy me a hydrangea but didn't know which one to get and because ordering them cost so much money (over $100) he didn't want to get the wrong kind for our zone, or something I didn't like... so he let me choose!
We found one really cheap at a local garden centre (Evergreen actually). It is an "Endless Summer - The Original" a mophead hydrangea which can be blue or pink. It looks like mine is mostly pink! It's supposed to be hardy to Zone 3 so we're giving it a try!!!
I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!! However it is a bit disconcerting when I go out on a super sunny day and it's all flopped over! Apparently that's natural but I'm afraid I've planted it in too sunny a spot. Well we'll see how it goes. Any hydrangea tips? YAY!!!
