Re: lavendula officinalis ..now hydrangeas

Kitty, It sounds as tho you have educated yourself re hydrangeas. I had not 
read about the Hovaria types. In an article by Ann wilson in Garden Design 
she quotes th e Morton Arboretum as saying the macrophylla and serrata 
varieties are unreliable bloomers. Would you agree ? When Floyd Giles 
addressed our MG class back in '94 he told us 'Annabelle' was the only one 
worth growing in our area. So that's the one I recommend to clients. However 
the man was so opinionated about other things that I am doubtful. Also he was 
associated with U of I and 'Annabelle' was evidently developed there. I 
planted  a couple 'Nikko' types here some time ago and they are limping 
along. As you can tell I am unsure every time the question of hydrangeas 
comes up. Would love to know what varieties do well in this area..especially 
ones that do well in landscaping the average yard..not too lanky, nice 
foliage, reliable bloomer, doesn't require special pruning, special feeding, 
etc. Kathyz5b
