One of the (many) things I have come to know and love in MD are the gorgeous hydrangea that adorn the beautiful colonial style homes in this area. I have learned that these plants need a great deal of shade and really can't take the heat, which is why we don't enjoy them naturally in FL.
After a delicious dinner party at our friend's home recently, I was "green" with envy at the French Hydrangea that lined their backyard. My thoughtful friend brougt me a gorgeou bouquet of clippings and I have planted to create my own little Maryland oasis! Thanks M&S!
