At our friends, Ruthie and Berryman Edward’s garden walk Annabelle’s steal the show. We designed it two years ago and are delighted with the beautiful hydrangea and hosta display very early this summer….3 weeks early. Annabelle, Bella Anna, Tardiva ( just starting) and Endless summer are all in a cacophony of WHITE and blue. The weird thing is that the internodal stretch on the tardivas has created very elongated nodes, some 6″ apart..not at all normal. This means the limbs will fall out from the weight of the flower heads. It will be 90 here on Saturday. We’ve had heat early, lots of rain and voila! Corset anyone??
