Oak Leaf Hydrangea and Hosta – A Winning Combination

Oak Leaf hydrangea are bursting into bloom in southeast Alabama after the past 10 days of almost ceaseless rain.  Nothing thrills me more than the sight of blooming hydrangea!   Combining them in arrangements with hosta produces green and white floral design that is classic, simple elegance. My friend, Kathy Cleveland, gives me full “cutting rights” to her lovely garden. I photographed these beautiful blooms a couple of days ago.

Newton was invaluable in helping me clip hydrangea and hosta ..

Another friend, Debbie Hundley, loaned me this gorgeous French styled container that I couldn’t wait to use- a perfect vessel for the hydrangea and hosta.
