    Dahlias have become very popularplus the varieties. They are also so easy to propagate. I am browsing the bulb list for liliums. Over the past few years I have spent a small fortune on them and due to poor health, it's been like dropping my money down the drain.

      2 Pink Mophead Hydrangeas and 2 Pink Lace Hydrangeas,..one of each had Hydrangea Colourant added to the soil producing a blue bloom instead of pink,..the following years nothing added and the blue blooms mostly changed to a mauve colour,..though still producing a few blue blooms.

              "It has rather too many ray florets to be the straight species.
              I think it must be a hybrid with a 'modern' double."
              This was a comment on another website and having looked at the link I agree with the comment; doesn't detract from the beauty though.

                  Its is a nice flower, how tall does it get?
                  And does it continue flowering from now until frosts begin.
