Well, thanks the God, as I had prayed as much as I could, it is not green, but out of blue, I actually found out that I was a bit disappointed with the look of flower. It doesn’t turn out a big flower head like normal mophead or lacecap type of hydrangeas as much as I had wished. The problem with that is the flower-head isn’t big enough to form a flower ball and the little individual flowers are not dense enough to make an impression.
I guess I have no control on this. I did have several cuttings including mophead and lacecap types, but they didn’t survive. The only type of cutting who eventually made its way is this one. So, I think I shouldn’t be so mean or greedy about that. Instead of that, it’s after all THE LIFE that worth celebrating.
Apart from that, I think this hydrangea isn’t really as healthy as it can get. Comparing to what I have seen in the nursery market, the plant is too leggy and the leaves look so sparse. I think I made a terrible mistake. I actually transplanted it when it was already in the process of flowering (at the stage of it having the tiny flower buds). The plant must have experienced some sort of shock which caused the whole flowering period in a so-called bigger and happier “home” not so delightful and friendly.
But I guess this is just as it could be. It finally flowered and now all I am thinking is when and how to prune it and make it healthier for the next year. The circle of the life, uh?
