I have been nursing a hydrangea plant for the past three years.
It was a plant I got when my neighbor moved away and invited up to dig up the rest of her lawn.
My hydrangea is in our backyard, in full sun most of the day, and unfortunately, some damn bugs attack the green leaves every year. I have been spraying a natural cure on it and the leaves get a little less eaten every year. Hell, I almost fainted last year when I actually had two little flowers come up of the leaves. I will keep trying-hope springs eternal.
