Dang Eddie, you must take really good care of your flowers, I haven't had one in my yard for months. Of course most of my weeds stop flowering and die back at the end of the fall here LOL

Yes, I was about to say the same thing...aren't those Hydrangeas? They've been long gone in my backyard! What's the secret?

Thanks guys....hydrangeas are a very easy plant to grow once you find the right location for it. I have found they do best out of the afternoon sun, well drained soil, with the right pH. Pruning is mandatory if you want a lot of thick growth. You let them grow on their own they get woody. I cut these back to nothing every year, then prune through out the growing season. The spring growth is rapid, catching up to and surpassing last years size very quickly. When they start getting to big to handle, I split the root ball, and move half to another location. Hope that helps.

Thanks for the tips. I'll prune my back this Winter. Hopefully it will grow stronger next year.
