So I am going to talk about my favorite plant of the year and ignore the catastrophe with lack of rain.
"Little Lime" paniculata hydrangea was something I was NOT looking for .. it wasn't on my wish list .. it wasn't on any radar I think of perpetually .. it was a complete surprise to me in fact !
Green ... healthy .. no signs of fatigue from heat and lack of rain.
Green on green with some blue green and "white" green thrown in?
What I love are those little white buttons in the middle of the flower .. like little pearls?
I love this little hydrangea to bits .. the size and how hard it works to look good are top notch characteristics for my garden.
It is a Proven Winners selection so I know it is going to be totally up to the job.
So if you are looking for a small but brilliant hydrangea that has colouring on the "cool" side with out screaming pink or blue ... this is the little star for YOU!
BTW ? what has been your favorite plant this year ?
