Hi Sheryl, do you just love the blue color!!
my poor ol hydrangeas had to be cut back to the nubs after that last late heavy freeze in the Springs–just when they were starting to leaf and bud out—they luckily have survived but will not be blooming this years. My two are blue as well—these are lovely pictures Michael and will happily tide me over until mine can bloom next year 🙂
I know what you are talking about, I had that happen three years ago, I was very upset but I pruned them and they are doing ok now. I hate getting those late hard frost, it’s tough on all the plants. The colors this year are exceptional! 🙂
No, I don’t grow them but I have always wanted to – especially the blue ones because blue is my favorite color! Sharing on my FB page!
Hi Kelli! I love the blue rich colors too! Blue is my favorite color as well 🙂
Beautiful! My favorite flower!
No, we do not grow hydrangeas at our house.
The blue is pretty Lindy! 🙂
The blue of your hydrangea is gorgeous! We do not have hydrangeas here, but did have them in northeast Ohio (where we used to live). My husband has been talking about planting some because they are one of his favorites.
thank you, he should, as you know they are not hard to grow as long as they get planted in the right place. They don’t like direct afternoon sun in our area 🙂
Your hydrangea is perfection! And yes, we grow a few varieties, but they didn’t handle the our last late freeze very well. They’re resilient though, next year will be better!
I heard several people in your area say that, yall must have had a late frost!
Yay!! The hydrangeas are blooming!!! Nice photo!!
thank you! Don’t you love the hydrangea flowers!
That is a beautiful hydrangea! Greg got me a plant for Easter. The flowers died and we planted it in a shady area of our garden. So far so good. The flowers did not come back but the plant looks healthy. He got my mother the same plant and of course her plant is flowering and looks great!
your plant probably needs a little fertilizer boost. If you don’t have raccoons, I would give it a bucket of liquid Fish Emulsion. Raccoons will think you buried fish and dig around your plant.
ha ha ha That is all we need a few raccoons along with the other critters that like to eat our plants! 🙂
I know what you mean Bernice! 🙂
It’s beautiful! In Japan they say the Hydrangea are best viewed in rain, and they do flower during the rainy season there. I saw a whole garden full of them there and it was quite something!
Oh wow, you’ve been to Japan, I have always wanted to visit Japan. I bet it was great! 🙂
I grow Annabelle hydrangeas but I like the blue ones too. They hold their color well when you dry them.
I like the Annabelle hydrangeas, tried to grow one a couple years ago and it died on me. I need to try another one.
Fantastic color on your hydrangea. I’m waiting ’til next year for mine to flower (took a hit this winter).
A bunch of blogger said their hydrangea got hit with a late frost too!
That is so gorgeous. My hydrangeas are starting to bloom now, but I don’t expect anything quite that spectacular.
Good morning Charlie, thank you!! I hope you get the most wonderful flowers!!
Those are beautiful! I don’t have any growing in my garden but I’d love it if I did.
My absolute favourite plant!! Thank you for this lovely pic – and also the right colour 😀
Mostly I just see the purple ones here, blue isn´t that often where I wonder around. Lovely!!
thank you Davina, I had a purple and pink last year but this year they all bloomed blue!
Don´t you have to add this special blue fertilizer so that they will bloom blue? We have to do that all through the year, so many people don´t do it at all.
My wife likes the pink color so I add the special fertilizer to get the pink color but this year all of the hydrangeas are blue, even the plants that I added the special fertilizer for pink color. Oh well!!
Maybe it´s the manufacturers fault … he might have mixed up blue and pink … maybe he was colour-blind or so *chuckle*
lol, I like that, you might be right! 🙂
