stacked stone stairs. We have these--going from our garage area, and leading up to our back deck, as the house is on a hill--but if anyone has an idea for a step between the deck and the first stacked stone, let me know, as the step-down/drop is TOO much, and I am worried that someone, including me, is going to bite it, and hurt themselves.
Shade-hardy plants. Bright blooms of yellow sedum, lamb's ear, hostas & bright red astilbe.

Tips for growing Hydrangea - Hydrangea are a wonderful flowering shrub. The blossoms can be very large and come in several colors: Red, Pink, Blue, Purple and White. Some varieties have blossoms of different colors. The color of the hydrangea flower really varies with the amount of aluminum ions in the soil. Acidic soils with a pH of less than 5.5 produce blue flowers; soils with a pH greater than 5.5 product pink flowers. White flowers are not affected by pH.
