I have four Hydrangeas now this year. White, a Pink Lace top, a Purple and well a Fuchsia. All of them have bloomed this year with the exception of the Fuchsia one. I may have trimmed it back too soon or too much. I am still learning to care for these beauties. My white was a little out of control this year must have been all that humidity I was over 6ft tall and I was having to stake the blooms up for fear of them breaking their branches. So I do believe it will need an aggressive trim job come early spring.
What is fascinating to me about these beauties is that they are always changing. And remember these are just the single blooms of these wonderful flowers. The blooms range from the size of a little smaller than the size of a dime to not quite the size of a nickel so, they are quite small and delicate.
The white changes to green and then to veins of brown but maintaining their shapes and beauty that the frost and raindrops adhere to making it look so magical. I will be waiting for this to happen and capturing their beauty yet into the winter. The purple changes to green and blue with fringes of pink and again they also turn almost skeleton like. The pink lace top
remain pink, just different shades of pink and has amazing little flowers that erupt once the big pink have bloomed.
I have been fortunate to have captured these all in a few of their phases to share with you. I hope you enjoy them and remember to check back in the early fall and winter to see their beauty then also.
