More of My Hydrangea Collection...

See yesterday's post for the initial collection of hydrangeas from my garden.
Tonight, as we were sitting on the back deck, enjoying dinner, I realized I hadn't photographed any of the hydrangeas in my backyard area! So, here's more to see! Vibrant blue LaceCap
Purple-toned
Huge mophead Hydrangeas. These babies are fed nothing but garden compost, mint compost, and good, clean Oregon well water!
This shrub is creating multiple colors of flowers. It's in a partial shade garden that gets only 1 hour of direct sunlight each day. I believe the light affects the plant.
Giant Classic Mophead from my backyard! This borders a fence between us and our neighbors. The shrubs have now grown over the fence, in only 7 years!
Full view of the mopheads mentioned above
Pretty pastels here!
One last hydrangea. I remember buying this at Dancing Oaks Nursery, near Airlie, Oregon. It is one of the most expensive nurseries in the state, but produces the most sure-fire, beautiful, healthy plants I've ever owned...
