    This was so lovely even with most of the flowers smushed and decayed. A quick cleanup at home and it’s as good as new. Anyone hazard to help me identify this little beauty? IMG_7179.jpeg

    It looks like a Hydrangea hybrid to me.
    H. Macrophilla ‘Mirai’ ?

    @Sjoerd Thanks Sjoerd, I think you are spot on. I was thinking possibly a hydrangea but it was inside and I had never seen this striking color for a hydrangea before. Guess I will have to find a bigger outdoors pot for it and enjoy it in my shady summer sitting area.

    Good luck with it, Jewell— it is a real looker.
    I have seen a similar one before, but not as lovely as this specimen. I am a leedl bit jealous.

    @Pacnorwest a great bonus indeed. I was remiss to remove some lilac and hydrangea that were scattered about the area I needed to have leveled and had weed trees rooted in their centers. Eventually this plant will have a home where it can be throughly enjoyed by many.

    @eileen I had no idea hydrangea came in such a color. Now I hope to get it to thrive. Seems it may be four twig starts without adequate roots. Guess they had to get it to market for Mothers Day :fingerscrossed:
