Unbelievable! Look at these little lovelies straight from my side-sheltered garden. I had the most beautiful blue hydrangeas at the Atlanta house—they were over twenty-five years old and bloomed prolifically. I wanted to try to duplicate them here in Cashiers, but everyone said they wouldn’t grow here. They didn’t bloom for two years, but then WOW did they ever bloom this year! Wish me luck for next year’s blooms—and try something no one else thinks will work in your garden. Go for it!
