Wordless Wednesday–Hibiscus and Hydrangea

L’il Kim–one of my Proven Winners test shrubs (hibiscus syriacus ‘Antong Two’).  It’s a little bigger than projected but its mate stayed true to  size.

Another Proven Winners test shrub, this time a double pink variegated hibiscus known as Sugar Tip (hibiscus syriacus ‘America Irene Stout’).

For color, there’s still no beating this blue hydrangea, known as ‘Nikko Blue.’  Unfortunately its blooms are not reliably hardy for me.

This is our most reliably hardy blue blooming hydrangea–Endless Summer.  Sadly, its color is no match for the other blues I’ve shown.  However its reliability is unsurpassed–and that means a lot!
