Well I have taken the bull by the horns and cut down the Pink Lacy Edged Hydranger, it really has over grown its place this year. Pruning it properly would have still left me with a problem, hence the kill or cure chop.
Would you believe it the Yucca has developed a flower, can't think it will open but who knows. This is how it looked earlier this summer. The only problem is Blackfly, oh boy do they love the flowers. Cutting the flowers as soon as they go off is one answer.
