The IncrediBALL Hydrangea!

It's no secret that I love white! Not only is the inside of my house filled with white, white, white, but white is also a garden theme!
When I see hydrangeas, especially any in the white pom-pom party, my heart skips a beat! They are the flower of yesteryear, Grandma's house revisited, AND they are gorgeous in a vase!



I found this variety at my local nursery, Prairie Gardens. I especially enjoy the name - The Incrediball! According to Prairie Garden's expert, it is supposed to be the "knockout rose" of hydrangeas and boasts a bigger stem to avoid flopping. (Just try to maintain mature appearances while inquiring about "incrediballs that have big stems and don't flop" might be difficult!)
Happy Gardening!
