Cityline Rio Hydrangea macrophylla - Strong Blue/Purple
Hydrangea is a genus of about 100 species of flowering plants native to southern and eastern Asia (from Japan to China, the Himalaya and Indonesia) and North and South America. Hydrangeas produce flowers from early spring to late autumn. The flowers of Hydrangea are carried in bunches, at the ends of the stems. Each individual Hydrangea flower is relatively small. However, the display of color is enhanced by a ring of modified bracts around each flower.
In most species of Hydrangea the flowers are white, but in some species, can be blue, red, pink, or purple. In Hydrangea species the exact color often depends upon the acidity or alkalinity of the soil. Acidic soils produce blue flowers, neutral soils produce pale cream petals, and alkaline soils result in pink or purple.
A small to medium, early blooming selection with large flowers that range from strong blue to purple depending on the soil; add aluminum sulfate to the soil to encourage blue flower color. The blooms are large and longlasting. This plant has excellent mildew resistance, and makes a great container plant

Ipomoea Marguerite in garden urn adds punch to the foliage in the shade garden
Ipomoea Marguerite in garden urn adds punch to the foliage in the shade garden
There's a bit of pink impatiens in the urn, but, in this photo, there isn't much but foliage for color and design. Ipomoea is perennial in my garden. It gets pretty sparse and ratty looking in the winter, but quickly comes back, bigger than before. Things we see after we shoot: I wish I'd removed the spent, dried gardenia blooms from the bush to the right of the urn.
