My Plum Hydrangea looks like a Bonsai?
This is really funny and simply adorable. This was from a cutting a solid year ago! It is in very good soil and I overwintered this in my home. I have given it so much TLC and this is what I got! I think I have four or five more of these but not like this!
The little plant set beside it in the pot is a rooted Fuschia...forgot to take it out of the pic. I was planting a bunch of those in pots that day. She measures only 6" from soil to the top of her bloom.
The color is slowly deepening and once it turns that deep rich plum, I will post a new pic...
Isn't it funny what plants do?
Ok to compare, this next one is the same age but it is a Blue Mophead Hydrangea, same soil and same care? This one measures a surprising 2 feet 3" and I had to back away from the table to take the pic...how strange??? My other 1 yr old hydrangeas are not nearly this tall or nearly as short as the other???? LOL

What I thought was funny...
was the two gold pots in the background in the first two pics...looked like good size arborvitae/shrubs in big pots on the ground.
Only to see they are really not bigger than a dixie cup...on the table in the third pic.
