In this post, I want to share a short post featuring a video that is part of my Mid-September Playlist. Check out the blooms on this Mid-September Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea.
Mid-September Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea Video
It has been a crazy summer in my home and garden. Little watering, weeding, and just being downright lazy with my theme this summer. At the end of the growing season, I am loving the turnout. Plants I would normally be nervous to leave go without weeding or watering during a dry summer are looking spectacular. Maybe that is the key to being the perfect gardener: Just be Lazy!
I hope you will check out this video and be kind to comment telling me what you think. Do you grow this variety of Hydrangea?
This video and others on the Mid-September Playlist can be found on my Bren Haas YouTube Channel. Just search for @brenhaas on that network or click the link on my website to view more.
HIGHLIGHTS From the Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea Video
I can’t get enough of how fantastic the blooms are performing.
Be sure to scroll down to check out the images I capture using my iPhone 11 pro with little editing. That phone is amazing!
Basically the white on the Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea started to pop later in the summer which is unlike what it has done in the past. Completely AMAZED at how well this shrub performs.
I am finding the same color pattern just different sized blooms on the plants I have out in different landscapes. In the weeks leading up to September, my first Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea shrubs have been moved to a different location in the gardens.
I’ll share in a later post if I moved them correctly. The most shade space is not growing a few new varieties of shrubs I will show in a later post in the Mid-Summer Landscape Series so stay tuned.
The only explanation for the blooms finally turning blue after lower the pH of the soil is that this hydrangea did not bloom last year. Maybe if it would have bloomed they would have……
One of my favorite things about summer is the blooms of the hydrangea shrubs. In this post-Bren answers a GardenChat question about spots.
In concluding to sharing the first video of my Mid-Summer Landscape Playlist series I hope you will consider commenting. It is an honor to share with you what works in my landscape. Do you have questions about the plants or maybe a suggestion for the border pointed out in the video above? DO TELL!
