|Design Ideas||This smaller Hydrangea fits well in very tiny gardens. Short enough to grow and bloom beneath windows, or plant in heavy decorative pots for a seasonal show. With its full-sized pink flowers, it's ideal for disguising the underpinnings of decks and the side view of steps, or tuck it into small planters between windows and doors. This is the Hydrangea for narrow side yards, where it won't crowd access. Also perfect in the shade beneath the canopies of medium-sized flowering trees.|
