I mentioned that I loved the purple/green/blue of the Hydrangea Macrophilia, but as yet I had not purchased one. I couldn't decide if this was one of those 'fad flowers' - the kind that everyone runs out a buys and sticks in their yard - and then, everywhere you look, there they are, until you're sick of seeing them and vow to never plant one in your own yard. Like forsythia. Around here they're one of the first things blooming in the Spring and it seems like everybody has one. Now, I like forsythias just fine, but I don't see why I should plant one if everyone else already has...I figure I'll plant something different.
