Almost a year ago, I saw a picture of a hanging basket that took my breath away. It, or I should say they, since there were many of them at the arboretum where this picture was taken, were big and draping colorful blooms over the edges of the baskets. I knew I wanted to recreate this beautiful picture with plants and baskets of my own. Here is the beginning of my Hydrangea baskets.I chose variegated Hydrangea's since I already own the solid leaf variety and the variegated leaf gives more interest when the plant is not in bloom. I can't wait until next Spring, when I get to see the full results.
..and by the way - the hanging baskets were purchased at Walmart on sale for $5.00 each. The Hydrangeas, 2 per basket, were on sale at Houston Plants for only $3.00 each!
