Re: ..now hydrangeas

Kitty and Kathy, I have had quercifolia 'Snow Queen' in my garden for 3yrs 
and it has done fine.  I have it planted on the east side of the house and 
near the foundation to provide max protection.  I selected it mostly because 
the foliage turns a wonderful dark red in the fall.
I would much prefer the macrophyllas but they will not bloom in my climate.  
I do have a varigated one which I like for the foliage and maybe 1 out of 4-5 
yrs I will get a few blooms.  This dies back to the soil in the winter so I 
lose the bloom buds.
    I am looking forward to Baileys new macrophylla which blooms on new & old 
wood but will not be released til 2004.  I saw it at the Iowa Nursery & 
Landscape Assoc convention last month.  It has huge blooms.
    Ceres, Iowa zone 4/5
