What does you house look like in winter? - when the hydrangeas die back your blue color is gone. Except for your porch of course. How do you decorate? Or do you just live with large dried hydrangea blossoms?
I am wondering because yellow Acubas, red Rhodys and blue hydrangeas sound like an easy maintenance yard for our NW home!

In BC, our hydrangeas keep their leaves until the end of November, and while the colors of the flowers start fading in September, they are not completely dry until the end of the year. No, I don't cut the dried blossoms, until March, and can easily live with that. For sure, it doesn't look as glorious as during the Summer, but rhododendrons, evergreens and yellow Acubas bring some color to the winter landscape.
