Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangeas - Morton Arboretum Plant Sale - May 22
Yesterday, I started with the first set of plants that I picked up at the Morton Arboretum Plant Sale: three Little Honey Oakleaf Hydrangea. In that post, I talked about the sale (it is really great) and how I went in with a plan (shrubs first, others second). I was able to (mostly) stick to my plan and brought home a total of five flowering shrubs - three Little Honey - and two Ruby Slippers Oakleaf Hydrangeas.
Again....I'll mention: #1 on my 2022 to-do list was to focus on shrubs. And, these two Ruby Slippers pays that off. In my 'shrubs' post where I listed out needs, I talked about five Oakleaf Hydrangeas. Turns out, I *think* that I really need either eight (three more) or (maybe) just five, but three more of SOME OTHER kind of dwarf flowering shrub.Before we talk about placement, let's look at Hydrangea quercifolia 'Ruby Slippers'. Below are the two that I brought home:
