Question
Hydranga
Hydranga  
I live in southern Michigan and my hydranga plant has 3 large leaves growing in it. Are these leaves part of the plant or just a weed.

Answer
Hi Linda,
Thanx for your question.  The leaves don't look like hydrangea leaves.  I'd say it was a weed or some other wild flower.  You might trace the stems back and If they're coming directly out of the ground...weed.  Pretty sure it is a weed.
I hope this helps.
Tom

Expertise

I have been a gardener for 20 years with perennials both growing from seed and from nurseries. I went through the Master Gardener Program from Kansas State University Cooperative Extension Service and I answered questions on the Hotline a few years ago for the Wyandotte County Kansas Extension Service. I have also lived in the Florida, California, Hawaii, Arizona, Texas, Kansas and Missouri and am experienced with a variety of climates, soils and weather conditions.

Experience

I have been growing perennials for over 20 years now. I am self-taught mostly except for a master gardener class. I have experimented with all kinds of perennials including many that are not common to my area. I have read hundreds of books and grown hundreds of varieties of plants and hope to make it a business some day. I have become versed in botanical names and growing conditions and what I don't know off of the top of my head I can usually easily find in my vast array of research material and botanical and horticultural contacts. I especially enjoy experimenting with growing plants out of zone.
