Lace Cap Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla). A Full Strawberry Moon Tonight!

Today I am sharing a few pictures of my Lace Cap Hydrangea.  I have had these plants about three years now, I purchased one gallon plants from Buena Creek Gardens, a local nursery.  I relocated them to a new bed and they are a bit leggy this year, but the flowers are beautiful and the plant is loaded with buds.

I planted these in my pink garden, along with some succulents with similar colors. These are looking so pretty at night with the full moon coming, they are glowing in the moonlight.

I added four new darker pink plants just last fall. I am happy to see the blooms on these already.  These are about two feet tall now.  I think as they grow larger the flower heads will spread out a bit more.

Enjoy your weekend gardening friends!
We have a full moon this weekend and I read that we have a Lunar Eclipse also.  I love a full moon!


  1. Simply beautiful, Carla. We don't see the Lace Caps here, but I've so enjoyed looking at these lovely shots. That second photo really shows off the form and colour so well.

  2. One can never have enough Hydrangeas. Yours are stunning, and I love the Lace Caps. When my Lace Cap blooms I will post a picture and story of it under my "From the Garden History Book" title as it was from a cutting I made while touring an Historical home here in Oregon.

  3. A full moon always makes me feel a bit crazy (in a good way!) Beautiful flowers!


Thank you for taking time to visit my blog, I love hearing from you, stay as long as you like, Carla
