Finally, the time arrived that I could plant the Hydrangeas I had bought about a month ago. I had them in the house until now, bringing them outside on the nicer days and in again at night.
You might remember I shared this picture from Pinterest on some container inspiration. You can find that post here with sources. This was a window box but the idea is easily transferred over to a pot or urn.
I decided to put the blue hydrangea in the urn by the front door. It will get some afternoon shade here.
I picked up some Creeping Jenny, English Ivy, and Sweet Potato Vine to trail or “spill” over the urn rim. This is early days yet and I’m expecting this to fill in and drape a bit more.
I planted the two purple and white ones in the front bed. Since they are small, they look a little lost right now. Once I get some of my other plantings in, I’ll be sure and share the whole look. These posts are helpful to me, too, because it helps me see what works from year to year.
I’ll have to remember to take some pictures a couple of months from now, too, to see how far things have come along. Are you trying new plantings this year?
