This spring while shopping for a few flowers for pots around the house, I was looking for something with a long bloom time. Some stores place their tree’s together, indoor plants together, outdoor plants together, etc. and then some stores have no organization at all. The store I went to was quite organized. I found the one I wanted, a Hydrangea !! Bloom time is great, they look beautiful and sounded easy to take care of. Just thirsty plants apparently.

Once home, I THEN read the whole tag. It’s a shrub, not a plant !!! What I call a plant, is something you toss in a pot to look pretty for a short time and throw it away in the fall. A damn shrub goes in the ground long term! And this one will get 5 feet tall and 5 feel wide !!! So, in the pot it went anyway. I read they can do ok in a pot but I’m pretty sure it needs a bigger one.

Either way, look!! It bloomed and it’s beautiful.

Next time maybe I should fully read the tag while still at the store. But this organized store I was at, should have put shrubs between the tree’s and plants for pots. Not with the flowering house and porch plants. It’s a shrub !! That’s clearly more in the tree family. Haha.
