Teardown Hydrangea - August 2018

Last October, I posted a photo of a trug of perennials that I dug out of a lot down the block ahead of their teardown and new build.  In that post, I mentioned that I *thought* that I had grabbed a hydrangea, but it was looking pretty dried out and rough.  And wasn't sure it was going to come back. 

In that same batch, I grabbed some hostas and ferns.  Here's a post that I shared of the ferns that came back.  And here's the hostas

Now, I have the final piece of the good-news puzzle:  what you see above is a healthy, flowering hydrangea that is emerging for it's first season in our yard. 

I'm posting this here so I can reference it in the [garden diary] in the future. 

This particular hydrangea has chartreuse-colored blooms and while short in stature is doing quite well without a lot of attention being paid to it during the hot Summer.  As it continues to put down it's roots this season, I'm expecting to have it get larger next season and fill out this space.  it is sitting in what I believe to be its final location as it is called out in our landscape plan - the section of which you can see here on the blog
