Here's my feeling about the one flower. For 4 years I had no flowers. Then this year, I did nothing different, but got a beautiful flower. It was something in nature that did this. The only thing that was different this year is that we had a lot more rain in the spring than we usually do and a much colder winter. So to me, that is what caused the flower to bloom, without any fertilizer or other treatment from me.

Addie, we have 2 lilac bushes and I wish they wouldn't bloom. I am highly allergic to them and can't sit on the back porch when they're blooming.

I'm surprised I was able to find my original post from 2015 abut my Hydrangea. In 2016, I had 1 flower once again. I'm really not into gardening. I am perfectly OK if this plant never has flowers. But this year, with no help at all from me, it has 11 flowers coming on it! I am just amazed! The only thing that was done differently was that DH stuck a piece of horseradish in the ground near the Hydrangea, and grew it, just pulling it out recently. Is this a new secret to flowering Hydrangea, ya think? LOL

About half of the flowers have bloomed so far. It's leaning toward pink, but 2 of the blooms are a purplish blue. I can't wait to see what the rest will be. When it's fully bloomed I'll take a picture and try to post it.

Yay for horseradish! 😕 Well, probably not. It sounds like it will be beautiful, Carol, so I hope you can post your photo.
