I worked in the yard off and on all weekend. Bushes are starting to be on 50% off here, so I ran around to different places to find some. I had a privacy fence put in about 2 years ago, and some of my huge bushes had to come out. It has taken me a while to build the landscaping back up. The snowball bush had been about 8 foot tall by 8 foot wide. It had to be cut to the ground when the fence was installed. It sure didn't take it long to bounce back.
I planted four hydrangeas. I have only had one hydrangea, and it hasn't done well. I am thinking it is not enough water. I have plenty of shade for them. So after all the bushes were planted, I secured a soaker hose in the line of bushes and covered it with mulch. Any tips on hydrangeas?
I know the Annabelle hydrangea grows well here, but I couldn't find any.
I also picked up a Viburnum Summer Snowflake. I have had good luck with viburnums in shade.
Here's what's blooming today, mostly daylilies.

Little Business is only about 3 inches across.
South Seas really are this iridescent coral.
Daylilies, cone flowers, and Asiatic lilies.
Don't these look like a flock of geese? I call them goose heads, but they are really loosestrife. They make me smile.
