Hydrangea paniculata grandiflora – I have these as cutsie little standards in pots and I ADORE them. I’ve just read that Sarah Raven gives her stems of hydrangea a bath to make them last in water…GREAT TIP! – I’ll be trying that one the next time I snip from these. My love for hydrangeas has intensified since I learned that Madonna hates them.
Erigeron karvinskianus – Frothy, sometimes pink-tipped petals, as if the fairies had left their lipstick on them. This is the perfect grow-anywhere pretty. I have it edging some of my borders, both in full sun and full shade; it seems not to care. I need more more more.
