My parents had huge Oak Leaf hydrangeas planted at their home in Mssissippi. The beauty of these plants is that they have tremendous staying power. After their summer blooming of snowy flowers, the dried blossoms stay as an elegant reminder of their beauty. Then as fall comes along the leaves turn beautiful colors to rival even the most majestic tree. A definite more for your money purchase.
I am in Ocean Springs, MS this week visiting with friends who go back to elementary school. That is a long time for some people born in 1952 and 1953. We have a wonderful time together and feel 18 again as long as we don't look closely in the mirror!
