Has anyone ever tried growing hydrangeas in a bog?
nope , they say damp well drained soil, but you never know, give one a try
They don't like sun either ,they do have varieties now that are more sun tolerant, but tried them and they died for me .I had beautiful ones back in NJ and here I think it is the heat also .Funny but someone gave me a lilac and so far so good now for 5 years .It does not grows as fast but it has flowered .I thought i could never grow them here but back in Jersey I had the pink white and purple ones and loved the smell.They do need a cold winter to help them along .Guessing this year lilacs should do good ,I hope
hi did you ever tried hydrangea in your bog filter?
Mine love it, I don't think they can get enough water. I planted them on edge of natural pond sometimes after heavy rain they are standing in water for a day or 2. Another great bush for wet area is cranberry, pretty flowers spring, bright red berries late summer, beautiful bronze fall color.
Thanks, is there anyway you can share us a picture of your pond hydrangea!
Sure will be at that house this weekend Think about planting American Cranberry if you have the room, you will not be disappointed
thanks for the tip, if you have a picture of the cranberry i will apreciate it!
will do this weekend
Did not go up to house this weekend will be up sometime during week
