Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

Magical Snowbells makes an ideal gift plant for indoors or on a shaded porch, where light can reflect its beauty. Lovely, white, cupped blooms are tipped with delicate, lime green markings – playing nicely against the dark green leaves. As the season fades, firm flowers turn to mint green with soft red margins. A versatile hydrangea: perfect for patio or porch pots or your favorite garden space.

 

For Gardeners

Pruning: Plants can be pruned to the ground and will reliably produce flowers the same year. For best results and more flower power, prune to shape in late summer, leaving a few older stems for earlier flowers the following spring.
