As you walk down the bike path in Altoona, IA, you may just stop in your tracks when you see this hydrangea at the edge of the Enabling Garden.

It’s the ‘Vanilla Strawberry’ variety that looks like sweet ice cream. The large shrub is covered in late summer blossoms that blend from pink to white.

The show stopping hydrangea at the Enabling Garden is still beautiful in autumn. The petals have all turned pink and begun to dry in big poufs. What a gorgeous addition to the fall color in the garden. This is a “must have” if you are looking for a plant that looks good in all seasons.
