New From Joy Creek Nursery. We have been growing out seedlings of hydrangeas for many years in hopes of finding something new. One of those seedlings first caught our eye two years ago because of its semi-double, lacecap flowers which sometimes appear fully double. Subsequent monitoring pleased us even more. The leaves are of good substance, somewhat rounded. The lacecap flowers are lavender pink to blue and medium in size with rose colored flower stems. We also appreciated the size and habit of the shrub. It is compact, rounded in shape and covered with flowers all summer. In the autumn, if grown in the sun, the foliage turns autumnal shades of rose and gold. We offered the naming rights of this plant at a fund-raiser for the Great Plant Picks program from the Miller Botanic Garden. One of our customers won the bidding and has named it after her mother, Eve. She recalls her lovely mother as "a woman in dungarees, rubber boots, and soil-stained hands carefully nurturing her favorite plantings and doing the grunt work required of an avid gardener." Eve had "gorgeous hydrangeas planted against a neighbor's fence." It is with great pleasure we launch our first lady of hydrangeas, Hydrangea `Eve'.
