We bought two hydrangea bushes when we first moved in 12 yrs. ago. Would you believe they've never flowered? We get big beautiful green leaves but no flowers. So, dh dug them out from the back yard and decided to throw them out front just for the heck of it. One is still leafy green but no flowers. A couple of weeks ago dh called me out the front door and said I had to see something. It was two hydrangea flowers in a GORGEOUS blue. I ended up cutting them to put on the table. Soooooo pretty! I hope we get more.
