    Beautiful colors as they transition into winter!


  2. Great photos! Lovely Autumn color!
    I like how the Autumn color of the leaves and blooms match the chocolate color of your page, too.


  3. Love the Oak leaf hydrangeas this time of year!


  4. I bought my first H. quercifolia earlier this year – no flowers yet but I do like the autumn foliage colour, and the leaf shape.


  5. Hydrangeas are so invaluable for fall color…the fading flowers and the foliage are just wonderful!


  6. Simply splendid. You’ve done much better with the ‘Little Honey’ than me. I bought one and it promptly died. Glad to see yours!

      The first one I ordered died pretty quickly too, but Bluestone Perennials sent me this one as a replacement.


  7. Sometimes nothing needs to be said over such beauty


  8. Wonderful hydrangeas look lovely even in the fall.


  9. Great picture of your flowering Hydrangea paniculata ‘Limelight’.
    I have the same hydrangea in our garden, bloomed very nicely.
    But I am not sure how to prune the plant correctly.
    Any advise please?
    – Cheers Gisela.


    • Such an easy plant to trim Gisela. It blooms off of new wood so I normally just trim it back at least a third every spring before it makes new growth. I’ve cut it back to half and it bounces back quickly. I give mine a tree shape by removing the lower branches so I can plant underneith it as well. Hope that helps.:)


  10. These are so beautiful! I’ve always enjoyed the fading blossoms of hydrangeas, but I’ve really noticed the colorful foliage this year as well.


  11. Everytime I see hydrangeas, I think of you! :)
