This is the Oakleaf Hydrangea that I gave the garden name of 'Sugar'
for the husband of the dear lady who gave me a sucker from her plant.
Two Oakleafs in the south border of the Oval Lawn.
Out of sight between them is a line of regular mophead hydrangeas
not quite yet ready to bloom with daylilies and true lilies.
This Oakleaf, a sucker from the garden of 'Miss Cassie' has a different habit to the ones above.
It has smaller leaves and spreads wider than it is tall.
On the right is a white Crape Myrtle to carry on white blooms through the summer.
Its crape twin is on the opposite side of the front lawn.
Crape Myrtle is not Native, but have been in the south since before 1800.
