Introducing Bobo

Turning heads, all summer long engulfed in abundant large white flowers from top to bottom Bobo, a new dwarf hydrangea from Proven Winners is
an undeniable asset to any garden. 

Small enough for flanking a doorway in matching pots, tucked among fading perennials in late summer, in patio pots on a covered loggia or even in mass as the photo above, are just some of the many uses of this long     blooming woody plant.

  1. I love hydrangeas. Love them! So happy to see this variety, MaryAnne. I'm planting some large white ones over the weekend around a 3 - tiered stone fountain we have off my bedroom. Gets no West sun at all so I think they will work there.

  2. I only have white hydrangeas in my garden.....so great choice!

  3. What a lovely blog !I miss having a garden !

    1. A sad thought for me as well, but for me even a single potted plant can be a garden of sorts. Love your blog and the nature of it............Thank you for stopping by, I hope you visit often.

  4. Just stunning! I wonder if they sell this hydrangea at the 7000 feet level - lots of plants survive by being potted only, and being whisked inside much of the summer! Thanks for a refreshing blog!

    1. Anonymous, if you go to Proven Winners' website you can type in your area and see who and where these as well as a host of other great plants are sold. Happy to know you are enjoying the blog.
