Hydrangeas: Summer Favorites

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hydrangeas are usually such an iconic flower in Newport but for the last two years (due to weather and other “acts of Mother Nature”) there has barely been a bloom in sight. The summer of 2017 is making up for lost time! At first I thought it was just Newport…but then I went to Nantucket. Theirs, too, looked as though they were on an overdose of Miracle Grow.

So here’s to summer!

A taste of Nantucket, where hydrangeas are to be found everywhere, within every landscape…

And a bit of Newport, where hydrangeas are treated more as accents.

Here’s to hydrangeas!
