An apartment building garden in Berlin. In the Welsch family city garden, some trees had to be cut down or fell down by themselves. Unfortunately, hurricanes also caused trees to fall on residential buildings, which was very dramatic. The grief for the beautiful old trees was great, but every problem carries a gift in hand. The very shady garden transformed itself into a sunny garden with flowers blooming like never before. Hydrangeas are the favourite plants of the Welsch family. Hardly any other hardy plant blooms for so long. When spring flowers and roses have faded, flowering is over in many German gardens. But hydrangeas take off in July, when most people are on summer vacation and their gardens are being neglected. Then hydrangeas continue to flower in August, and in September many get a great red fall colour. The panicle hydrangea Hydrangea paniculata 'Wims Red' is particularly recognizable in this garden. In winter, the dried inflorescences form an extension of the flower. Another theme of the garden are wild plants like Cichorium intybus.
