One of my favorite plants in the garden is my Hydrangea ‘Limelight’ and it’s looking great this season. All the rain has made it lush and full of blooms that are slowly opening up. I’ve tried to keep it trimmed into a small tree form so that I can grow lots of shade loving perennials below it. Soon the greenish tint will fade into a creamy white as they age.
A new favorite this year has to be another paniculata ‘Pinky Winky’. This is the third season in my garden and it has really leaped as the saying goes. Last year I had a few blooms, but this year it’s covered in these white conical shaped blossoms. Supposibly it will fade to a pinkish tone as it ages. In cooler climates the blooms will be a deep reddish pink all summer long. Regardless I love it and can’t wait to see what happens next. 🙂
