Brussels LaceThursday, August 07, 2014
When my remontant roses wane in August the flowers in our garden are the hydrangeas. One of my favourites is an extremely slow growing and almost dwarf Hydrangea paniculata ‘Brussels Lace’. Not written in books about hydrangeas is that the paniculatas and Hydrangea quercifolia all have a delightful honey scent at this time of the year. In the evening the scent wafts through the whole garden. Some gardeners ignore hydrangeas as they are easy to grow. Some will survive even in deep shade. And in my garden they have no pests or diseases. What more can I ask for?
