Hydrangea “pistachio”

I bought this little gem from Wayside Gardens, a well-known garden mail order catalog. It didn’t bloom the first year it was shipped, which I expected, and last year it just leafed out. This year, it has only grown a little bit, but I am happy that it produced a couple of blooms. I planted it in partial sun/shade and it receives mostly dappled afternoon sun. So far, it’s just a wee little shrub.

I am delighted.

About six inches across, it has a violet blue center, somewhat like a lacecap – not sure if this is a true lacecap, if so the surrounding petals are much more dominant. I love the color. No photo apps or filters, I am eager to watch this grow and continue to bloom. Most of my “pink” hydrangeas have turned blue.  How will it evolve as the blooms age? I am eager to see!
