Forever&Ever Summer Lace Hydrangea

No this is not my picture because the sweet little hydrangea is not in bloom at the moment .. but this picture is exactly what the tag on it displays so I thought it would do in a pinch !
I was not supposed to be buying any more plants and yet here I am again doing it .. please can anyone give me hints on how to STOP NOW ? haha
Honestly ? it is the call of plants I haven't seen before .. I just can't resist some of them .. and a beautiful reblooming lace cap that is on the smallish side is like a treasure .. or .. ok ... a BIG hunk of choclate with my name on it .. OK ?
Info on "Summer Lace" is there .. for some reason my "link" set up is not working so all of that data has to be seen .. ugh !
But .. I think you will be taken with this sweet hydrangea as I am : )

Buying plants is a lot less fattening than eating chocolate.

Lisa you caught this post before I got it up with everything I meant to put in here .. you are lighting FAST girl ! I can't get that link to work and now I am so curious !!
Hell ... I could use some chocolate right now!! LOL

Link is working fine for me. Was curious to see if it is H. macrophylla - I am usually not a fan, but like H. Twist & Shout, it may just grow on me. I shall expect updates a year from now to let us know what you think! The siren's call to buying has never sounded louder than it has been this year! Chocolate or plants..... I know, Eupatorium rugosum 'Chocolate'..... the best of both worlds! Hope all is well with you dearheart!

I agree with Lisa. Plus the plants put oxygen back into the air so we can breathe. But wait. Maybe there's something in it that makes us buy more plants. It's a conspiracy (everyone like a good conspiracy theory) to make us healthier! Darn you smartie-plants!

Sweetie I used to have a clean look to the link with an asigned name with link hidden in it .. some setting some where is CRANKY!
My Twist&Shout was gorgeous but I didn't get to the flowers fast enough to save them for drying .. next year for sure! YES !! That is why I have both chocolates in my garden Cimicifga 'Chocoholic" and Eupatorium rugosm "Chocolate" and I want to collect more CHOCOLATE plants ! LOL
I'm struggling a bit sweetie .. I wanted to e-mail you about the Indian Pinks setting up flower buds AGAIN after I cut it back !!

Aeriel-el girl you are too funny : )I think it is a conspiracy too girl! Those smartie-plants are taking over the world with us as their drones !!LOL
