I had another bare spot alongside my back porch and I wanted to plant a shrub of some kind. In the spirit of continuing my living memorial to Trixie, I dug out the spot to plant a Incrediball Blush Smooth Hydrangea.
I didn’t want a really large plant here that grew to a height that obscured my view from my porch. The Incrediball Blush Smooth Hydrangea needs full sun and at maturity should reach 4 to 5 foot tall and wide. Seemed the perfect fit for the area I was planting.
What I planted was a sorry looking Incrediball Blush Smooth Hydrangea that I ordered off Amazon. I’m counting on it looking better in the spring. Its stout stems should support the massive blooms without hanging down like the classic ‘Annabelle’ hydrangea. I’m looking forward to see how this performs next spring.
