I love hydrangeas. My grandma and grandpa had them in their yard when I was little. When they passed away, before the house sold, my dad dug them up. They still grow and bloom at his house, my childhood home, today.
A hydrangea was one of the first plants I purchased when we bought our first home. I have a few more and even a tree version. It's a PeeGee Hydrangea Tree. It blooms every year in the summer and I leave those blooms alone until the spring. It's nice to see the the delicate flowers in the winter even though they have turned brown.
