'Endless Summer' Hydrangea...

My Hydrangea macrophylla 'Endless Summer' is so lovely right now. I think this year it has the most blooms yet.

When I bought it several years ago, I put it in the ground where it is now, but the soil was just too dry (it is next to the Incense Cedars), so I moved the Hydrangea into a large pot and it does better now.

I still have trouble with it not getting enough water, so I am planning to plant it in the ground, just not by the Incense Cedars. This time, it will be under a Laural Oak.

On my table, I have a 3 cornered, three-footed beautiful glass dish in which I am floating 3 smaller blooms from a different Hydrangea bush. It makes such lovely centerpiece. I'll have to post a picture of it.

Aren't you glad there are such luscious flowers in the world for us to enjoy?

Have a beautiful day!

Yes I love hydrangeas! And did you know they are easy to propagate? I have a 3 yr old mophead that I started from a little stem and this year it has blooms for the first time. It looks very similar to yours pictured. Thanks for sharing!

I do envy your success with the hydrangea! I am having some difficulty with mine here in the northeast.

I love your blog which I found after you so kindly visited mine recently. I have left you a challenge there. I do hope you take it. Pam
