My Favorite Hydrangea

Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Mariesii Variegata’

These are second-year cuttings that I planted out last year, five of them. I hope this is the year they creep and then leap to their usual size. The blooms are gentian blue lace-caps.  The leaves pick up the color of Halcyon Blue hostas, If I should find some new hostas this year. They’re planted in high shade in the Upper Garden.
