Propagating Hydrangeas

Back in 2012 I did a little post on hydrangeas and mentioned they are easily propagated, but I didn't tell you how. It's really simple, but you must have patience! These things take time.... and did I mention patience??? 

The great thing about propagating - besides it being practically free - is that if your friend has a gorgeous hydrangea bush or if you are sentimental about having a shrub that came from a loved ones house, you can have a clone of the same shrub without digging the whole plant up.

First, I'll show you some of the gorgeous blooms from those bushes I propagated. I propagated a blue one from a cutting from my doctor's office, a white one from a cutting that I picked up off the ground in a garden center and a pink one that I can't remember where I found it.
The blooms on all the plants are so big and beautiful this year!
