MCH specialist John from Terrascapes Landscape Design & Fine Gardening recommends Hydrangea Paniculata (tree form). Good things generally come to happen in time with those with patience. As one of the cultivars of this plant is called 'Tardiva' it IS aptly named. These plants are slow to break dormancy, grow and expand foliage during much of the season. After months of such growth, there is indeed a floral explosion resulting in a beautiful canopy of white cones! #PlantSomethingMA #MCH #PlantProfessionals #GrowWithAPro #PlantSelfie Curious as to what an MCH is?

A prolific producer of nectar, lobelia (Lobelia spp.) is a magnet for pollinators. Attracting hummingbirds, butterflies and honey bees, lobelia thrives in sun to part shade and will tolerate average to wet soil. Blooming either red or blue in the summer, lobelia will reach heights of up to 4’ tall and is hardy in zones 4-8. #PlantSomethingMA #HomeGarden #HomeLandscaping #Lobelia #PlantForPollinators
