Joyce - it is called something like Hawaiian Coral.  The first pic is Coral Charm which starts off a similar colour, but fades to cream as time goes on.  Fleeting, but wonderful

Newly Transplanted Hydrangeas--Are they dead?

Posted: 09/06/2016 at 07:44

You might want to think about re- siting them too (although wait and see if they recover first).  Hydrangeas like a lot of water, so they will never be happy in the rainshadow of a roof unless you spend a lot of time watering them.  Have you anywhere else they could go?

Wonderful DD - looks so settled in already

Should I create a bed for a hedge?

Posted: 08/06/2016 at 07:46

How high do you want the hedge to be ?  And do you want evergreen?  Or something that flowers?


Yew makes a nice evergreen hedge, and beech is a nice deciduous one - whatever you choose is going to need trimming at least once a year if you want to keep it compact.
