Oak-Leaf Hydrangea "Snow Queen" - Image courtesy of the Missouri Botanical Gardens

Three years ago, now, I started a hedge of oak-leaf hydrangea behind the garden fence. This year, they're all blooming for the first time. Once they fill in, I hope to get an effect like the one in the photo above, a kind of heavy green and white backdrop to the perennial beds. Right now, they're all between 4 1/2 and 6 feet tall, but they're still relatively skinny and have not spread out that much yet. Given another year or two, they should mesh just fine.

Hopefully by then I'll have a digital camera so that I can actually show you what mine look like instead of hijacking other images.

Heh. I only recently figured out that the images you were posting were not actually from your garden/yard.

And I was going to say something about you being a show-off. Say it ain't so.
