In the summer, Hydrangeas form the backbone of the shade garden, they will carry the garden through the summer and keep my vases filled as well..
In The Circle of Friends, the camellias are now backdrop, and these beauties are showing their stuff.
On closer inspection however……
many are quite distinctive, above Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Jogasaki’
The lacecap Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Lanarth White’ above.
Hydrangea quercifolia & Hydrangea macrophylla above. Although I do enjoy the delicate lacecap flowers, the big blue or white balls are certainly eye-catching in the landscape.
Above, Oakleaf Hydrangeas mark the entrance to the Viburnum Court.
What carries your garden through summer?
