Jill Lewallen: Which picture are you referring to?

"what is the ground cover under the Hydrangea along the edge? They are such a dark pink. are they Hydrangea?"

On one of my pictures, the ground cover under the hydrangeas is actually moss--and the picture was taken in the middle of summer.

Also, I sprinkle lime around the base of the hydrangeas in early spring to keep the flowers pink.

My husband and I live in a mid century modern home and would prefer to invoke energy with jewel colors. With that said, I am debating creating a rose garden in an area behind the house. I don't think roses come in the cooler shades, but that would be really beautiful!
