I have several varieties of Hydrangea in my garden – it’s a reliable and hardy plant and puts on a beautiful display from spring until fall and then into winter with its papery flower heads.

The flowers come in many colours from pink, blue, rud, white, purple, and green as well as several different shapes and sizes.

Keep them well watered and be sure to give them a feed a couple of times through the summer.
