A dwarf Annabel-type hydrangea, the mature size of 'Invincibelle Wee White' is 12-36” tall. The creamy white blooms are lovely in the garden and they make a great cut flower too. This native cultivar blooms from early summer to fall.

|Tips for Beautiful Living|
|The soothing sound of water. There's nothing like the cleansing, soothing sound of water and there are many simple ways to add it to your home or garden. Small table fountains are a wonderful welcome indoors, and a simple fountain outdoors creates a restful atmosphere while softening the world of city noise around us.|
DIY - Create a small water fountain using 3 glazed pots, a small fountain pump, silicone and a nearby electrical outlet.
- Use the widest pot for the basin and seal the drainage hole if it has one.
- Next, turn a smaller pot upside down (make sure the base is the same size as the spill pot that will be sitting on it). This pot is the pump housing.
- Place it on 4 spacers (brick pieces, wood blocks, etc) in the center of your large collection pot to hold the pump housing pot up and allow water to flow through.
- Place the appropriate size hose on the pump and thread it through the hole in the pump housing pot and through the hole in the top spill pot.
- Lay the electric plug over the side of the basin.

Free, but please pre-register at the Garden Center or call 828-645-3937.
About Mardi Letson: Since 2014, Mardi has operated Gardens by Mardi, a small design and build landscape company in Asheville. She brings her longtime interests in art, horticulture, and the natural world to the discipline of garden design, and her outdoor spaces reflect a marriage of these fields. Mardi recently won a prestigious Gold Design Award from the Association of Landscape Professionals. She and her family have lived in the same house for twenty years, and many of her garden favorites have come from Reems Creek Nursery!
|FROM WILMA: In 1998 I had the privilege of attending the first Speaking of Gardening (SOG) symposium held at Richmond Hill Inn in Asheville where Hunter Stubbs (1969-2017) was Director of Horticulture. Stubbs had a vision of providing a symposium based on sound horticultural principals for industry professionals as well as gardening enthusiasts. SOG is now recognized as an elite gardening symposium.|
Now in SOG’s 21st year, the all-volunteer committee remains dedicated to its original goal. Speakers are both local as well as from all over the USA, Europe, and Japan. They are authors, professors, plant hunters, designers, architects, and nursery owners. Their passion for plants, the environment, and sustainable horticulture is contagious.
Reems Creek Nursery is proud to be a sponsor of SOG and two Garden Center staff members (Joel and Chris) are part of the volunteer committee. SOG’s 2019 symposium is scheduled for August 2-3 at Double Tree by Hilton in Biltmore Village. Early bird rates for SOG ends May 31.
