Hydragena (Endless Summer)
July 13, 2009 3:32pm CST
This photo is of my "wifes" Hydragen/endless summer. It is now about the size of a basketball and has a lot of flowers on it. It didn't do so well the first three years. Now I have a Hosta next to it that's twice it's size. I have to transplnat that and also find another spot for the Endless Summer so it can grow larger etc. as I plan on turning this bed inbto an all Lily bed next spring. Those are my plans at this time anyhow. Hahaha! Do you transplant flowers in your yard often? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

i am always moving my plants about. i have a lot of containers but sometime i replant the container plant into the ground or mix it in with another plant in a container. at the moment i have some rather nice white asters in with some aconitum which is a bright blue and it makes a lovely contrast with the green leaves. my husband loves to 'interfere' in my garden and has just put down a new patio which i am'allowed' to put 3 stone animals and 3 containers that match. ha !!but i have also put my wheelbarrow with the rest of my tomato plant crop , plus my my bird feeder. joking apart, he does take an interest in the garden which is more than some of the guys who live in our road. thanks for your interesting posts about your garden, bob, keep em coming.best wishes to you and your family, from us in the GB

thank you for the best response G Bob. I do love my garden and love to share it with everyone. I am not the best gardener in the world, I don't get enough time. But as soon as I am able, I will start posting some pictures so I can share . Your pictures are brilliant and thanks once again.

oh i love hydrangeas! mine is blue,but i've noticed by adding mulch it will turn purple. i don't transplant often,unless i get one from somebody that's removing one from their yard.i got 3 new rhodedenrons last year that way. i am going to try to propigate the hydrangea this year though.i would like to have more.
