Nothing says the end of summer like the giant blooms of the Pee Gee hydrangea. They look fantastic in the garden, and lovely as cut flowers in the house. Looking around my yard and my neighbor's yards, I'm realizing they are at their peak right now. I love the shape of the really old specimen "trees", with the twisty trunks and the larger than life white blossoms. However to see them at their peak is a little bitter sweet; I know very soon these blossoms will be turning a fantastic pinkish green...but just as quickly summer will be turning into autumn.
