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.
