Hydrangea paniculata ‘Mega Mindy’
at Digging Dog

Hydrangea

The name Hydrangea, means “water vessel,” given for its cup-shaped seed vessels. A genus of diverse forms, Hydrangeas are commonly found throughout Asia, from the Himalayas to Taiwan and Japan, with the exception of two species, Hydrangea arborescens and Hydrangea quercifolia, which are native to North America.

Easily grown, this shrub’s lush deciduous leaves are best suited to loose, moist soil in the shade of tall trees or on the north side of the house. If, like us, you’ve tired of the commoner sort, these delicacies will be a welcome surprise.

Selected by plant breeder, Dr. Johan Van Huylenbroeck and named after a Flemish children's super hero, this fantastic recently introduced Hydrangea develops into a sturdy fast growing deciduous shrub with broad deep green veined leaves and strong compact branches that proudly uphold a marvelous action-packed floral display. Large conical heads, emerging pure white and gradually broadcasting rosy red shades in late summer, make exquisite additions to cut arrangements, fresh or dried, and assert long lasting loveliness, even to a frosty midwinter landscape.

Hardy, adaptable and easily pruned for smaller garden spaces, 'Mega Mindy' looks valiant as a coarsely textured specimen along a woodland's edge amid swaths of fine bladed grasses like Sesleria and Pennisetum. (pp#23,070)

Blooms early July–October.

Size: 5-1/2' high x 4-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 3.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
