The Oak Leaf Hydrangea are blooming up on my little mountain and I have several patches in my yard that I have nurture along and they are blooming now.
Rumor has it that one of the Alridges from the Aldridge Nursery fame here in Birmingham was hiking along a utility right away one day and came upon some oak leaf hydrangea growing. He took some, and spent years working on them and soon patented the Snowflake variety.
These little beauties are one of my favorite things about living one the mountain…
