I still have the two hydrangeas that my Grandpa dug up and gave to me about 20 years ago. The picture shows the different colors on the same plant! My grandpas' hydrangeas grew and bloomed so beautifully in his yard. I wanted to try them in mine. He actually dug up three pieces of his for me to try. One died a couple years ago. Of course the other two have never been as beautiful as the ones were at his house but I keep them going because they are something he gave me. I feel like since he is gone now, it's like having a little bit of him still here with me.
My Grandma loved the color blue and the hydrangeas had tints of blues in them as well as pinks. She would absolutely love the new modern hydrangeas that are that deep dark blue. She loved anything that was blue. What a lot more to choose from now days!
I hope I can pass on a few pieces of my hydrangeas to my grandchildren someday.
