May 25, 2012 by Sandra Jonas WILKERSON MILL GARDENS Yesterday I had occasion to visit WILKERSON MILL GARDENS in Palmetto Georgia. Long one of my favorite nurseries for underused and hard to find plants; they now specialize in hydrangeas, every one imaginable, and the good news is they are available mail order! Above, pink “Annabelles”! (Hydrangea arborescens “Invincibelle“) Love the “Hydrangea Blue” wagons! I also noted some other very desirable plants to lust over. (below) Above , Red Lotus Tree (Manglietia insignis) in the Magnolia family…I never heard of it before. Above, the incredible foliage of “Moonlight” climbing hydrangea (Schizophragma hydrangeoides “Moonlight’) So if you are in Georgia, pack a picnic and go visit, if not, check the website for all the information you need to grow gorgeous hydrangeas and find a few you are not familiar with. Connect here. No, this is not a paid review, but if information on plants and planting are considered…I get an abundance of that!

Copied their idea of turning Tardiva’s into understory trees.
Of course began with 1 gallons and had to wait.

Oh! – I want to go there! I love the out of the way local nurseries – they will have plants, etc. never available at the big box places – – we have just about no such little nurseries left here around Macon anymore…thanks, Sandra!!
I have had the climbing hydrangea you mention for 3 years up in Canada and it is gorgeous…..grows quickly and very lush for weeks on end….probably one of my favourite plants….M
