The Pee Gee Hydrangea Flowers

It’s a little nuts this year.

I planted a Pee Gee Hydrangea (which grows into a tree size over time) some years back. Each year I prune it and bring the flowers inside—otherwise it gets too bushy and starts taking over the view out of the guest bedroom window and overhanging the back deck.

This year it THRIVED—and is getting much bigger. Cutting the river birches has given it more sun. When I prune, there are lots of blossoms, which I bring inside. They dry, keep their color, and last all winter.

The house is FULL of the blossoms this year. (These blossoms start out white and as the fall advances, turn this deep salmon color.)

Yep. It’s a bit nuts. But, warm and cheerful too.

  2. Love these as well have been known to cut them long and put them in an umbrella stand. Fun at the entry.  Good job Louisa!
