Hydrangea


Hydrangea
Hydrangea
(hy-DRAIN-juh)

Not really sure what type of Hydrangea this one is as it is one of the many plants I take care of that preexisted my tenure as a gardener. The shrub has gotten really big over the years and always yields a lot of blooms.

There are about 70 species of Hydrangeas and quite a few have ornamental purposes. Many cultivars have been developed for the garden including a range of colors, although the most naturally occurring color is white.
