A flower’s appeal is in its contradictions – so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance, so small in size yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect. ~Adabella Radici
I just love the way the spent blooms of hydrangeas get more interesting with age. The color of Nikko started out a crisp blue that has faded to a pleasing contrast of rose pink and lime green. It really looks beautiful combined with the new blossoms of Limelight in the Hydrangea Garden Bed. Hopefully these will linger on through fall providing texture and muted colors in the landscape. Don’t you just love how the seed heads or spent blossoms extend the season of interest a bit further?
