The Potted Hydrangea

I love a beautiful boxwood garden, but I love it even more with abundant hydrangeas. While peonies and tulips are a continual favorite, hydrangeas never disappoint with their full nature, plethora of colors, and always classic appeal.

I am always placing hydrangeas in vases (almost always white ones) around my house for an instant and complete finish to a room. Like potted boxwoods, potted hydrangeas are also highly effective to make your outdoors appear polished and elegant. Here are several inspiring images of potted hydrangeas (often paired with potted boxwoods) that will have you yearning for it to be summer all year round.

Saving the best for last. A potted hydrangea, a potted boxwood, and a sweet pug. If you follow me on instagram, you already know my love of pugs (and boxwoods).

Savor summer while it is still here. We will be wishing it wasn’t cold soon enough!

  1. Hi I love your blog. You’ve created a whole new world of obsessions for me! My garden has undergone a complete ‘topiary transformation’. Boxwoods are arriving by the day. I would love a ‘pug’ but will have to be content watching my favourite youtube video ‘lola the pug who couldnt run’. Thankyou for your consistent elegance & quality, you never fail to deliver. Regards Sharon Wright

    • Sharon, thank you so much! There is nothing quite like a garden of beautiful boxwoods. Maybe one day a pug can be in your future! Thank you for reading!
      All my best,

  2. Hydrangeas are one of my my favorites….do you think I could pot them in northern Canada and store them in the Garden shed over the winter? Love your simple elegance


  3. To answer Penny’s question.
    I live in Minnesota and store my Endless Summer Hydrangea that I have potted in a whiskey barrel in my garage during the winter, I water it lightly a few times, it has made it thru two winters and looks beautiful. :)
