When we moved in to this house about 2 years ago I thought this Hydrangea was a gonner, it just looked like a bunch of dead sticks coming out of the ground. But I started trimming it and could see there was still life there so tended to it and tried to bring it back to life. Then when I saw these incredible blooms I was hooked, and this year it actually has alot of leaves as well and you can hardly see the branches. Even though my hubby (not a gardener by any stretch) kept telling me to just cut it down, I don't give up on plants easily and in many cases I am happily rewarded.
