In a Vase on Monday – Dark Purple

This purple hydrangea left from last week’s vase seems to have gotten even darker. It’s a wonderful hydrangea which stays purple even in our acid soil – all of our other hydrangeas go BlueBlueBlue as soon as they get their roots down. This one has dark leaves as well – I think it could be called Brunette but that’s a guess as it came to me as a cutting from C’s Aunt.

I’ve just added some Poet’s Jasmine (Jasmine officinale var Grandiflorum), Star Jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) and a few Iceberg Roses.

Despite snow and rain in the Northern hemisphere, blooms and vases can still be found every Monday at Rambling in the Garden.

  1. Two of my favorites blue/purple hydrangea and jasmine neither of which grows in my garden….hydrangeas stay pink in my alkaline soil and we are too cold for jasmine. Your vase is bringing me wonderful summer warmth in my winter.

  2. I am not a huge hydrangea fan but this colour is stupendous and makes it look like something completely different – it looks wonderful contrasted with the white jasmine and trachelospermum and the foliage
