Hydrangea High

Here’s a new one: An article in today’s Global Post claims hydrangeas can be smoked to create a marjuana-like high. Who knew?  Apparently, German teenagers knew. Gardens across  southern Germany are being raided for their hydrangeas. There is a chemical in hydrangeas from the cyanide family which causes a high. So far, this crime spree – the hydrangea thefts, it’s unknown if smoking hydrangeas is illegal – has been confined to Germany. Phew, that’s a relief! I don’t have to post security around my hydrangeas – yet.   However, now that I’ve posted this news on ofgardens the spree could travel. My blog could just be that influential. Please let me know if your hydrangeas begin to be pilfered. You’ve been warned.
