Hydrangeas are some of my very favorite old fashioned flowers. I think it is because of the variety of colors they bloom in; but it also is that their bloom time is long and the violet complements every plant that blooms nearby. They are a photo shoot waiting to happen. Last year my late pruned bushes didn't bloom, so I am going to look for the bush called Annebelle because in Southern Living Magazine, the Grumpy Gardener told of it to replace the temperamental varieties!!
