Hydrangea Serrata Bluebird

Let me introduce you to Hydrangea Serrata Bluebird, a couple of years ago I decided to overhaul an unlovely corner of my garden.  Choosing plants, whilst always enjoyable, if fraught with angst.  Both my parents are very keen gardeners, so any selection has to pass muster in their eyes.  I put my suggestion to my Father, he told me that it was a wise choice.   This is the first summer that she has really settled into her new home and has put on a magnificent show.  It is a bittersweet joy to see, the rather rain damaged blooms, knowing that my Father will never stand beside me to see the new planting.

    So sorry to hear about your dad. He clearly knew his plants. This is a beauty, even with the damage. #MySundayPhoto

    That is a beautiful plant and I can imagine that the memory of your father giving his approval to you choosing it must be very bittersweet now that he is not here to see it x

    That is beautiful, I cant imagine the emotions you are feeling looking at those, but I am sure he would be very proud, Clio lending a helping hand for Coombe Mill

    I love hydrangeas and this looks to be a variety I haven’t seen before. Beautiful.

      I did lots of research before I opted for this one, last year it looked a little sorry for itself but definitely shows promise this year!

    That is bittersweet! You will need to care for this one extra carefully and every time you look at it you can remember your dad.
