  1. Lovely blooms...I'm a huge fan of Phlomis...and that first Salvia is a stunner!

  2. Every thing is looking so good there in the shade. Do you know how much sun the Oak Leaf Hydrangia can take?

    1. In my garden, it receives only dappled shade for a little over half the day, then a fence cuts off any direct sunshine. Even with that, during some of our hotter, drier times, it can wilt a fair bit. So I suspect it'll want mainly dappled sunshine at the most.
