Oakleaf Hydrangeas Flowering First Season - June 2020
Yesterday, I posted photos of both of the Munchkin Oakleaf Hydrangeas flowering and today I have a couple of photos of the traditional variety that are also flowering in their first year. There are five of these 'traditional' (aka. non-Munchkin) Oakleaf Hydrangeas that I planted in early June 2020. Those seven are the most important aspect of solving for - and planting out - "Priority Area #1" in our backyard. In the photo at the top of this post, you can see one of the conical flowers from one of these hydrangeas. Lime green small flowers followed by bright-white blooms.
Below, you can see two of the five traditional shrubs. (are these shrubs?) On the left is one with multiple flowers. On the right, the foliage is a little bit lighter color, but you can see a couple of flowers starting to emerge.
Here's a closeup of one of the flowers. Also note, the brown spots on the bottom leaf - that was present when they arrived (these were a bday present).
I'll be tracking these in the [garden diary] with the hopes that they'll grow up - and out - over this first season.
