June 24, 2012 by Sandra Jonas MY HYDRANGEA HEAVEN I suggested ‘Hydrangea Heaven” to Penny McHenry when she asked me to name her garden. Penny founded The American Hydrangea Society. More on Penny and the redesign of her garden in another post…. The following photos are from the part of my garden I call ‘My Hydrangea Heaven’….. Although she lights up the garden; Hydrangea quercifolia “Little Honey” does not stay ‘little’ for long! (below) Planted only two years later than the species to the right and catching up fast! Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Ayesha’ has most unusual cupped sepals, and waxy texture too… One of my favorites for small bouquets Hydrangea serrata ‘Tomi-no-Mai’ above An unknown lacecap above, and below, with an unknown mophead… Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Hanabi’ AKA “Fuji Waterfall’ and ‘Shooting Star’ below… Whenever there is a hydrangea that strikes my fancy I always ask if I can take a cutting, if the name is unknown it does not deter me, after all “what’s in a name?” AdvertisementShare this:TwitterPinterestFacebookLinkedInMoreEmailLike this:Like Loading...

OMG Sandra, wait til Chris sees this! we just spent hours looking at hydrangeas to plant…and we accept cuttings!
How totally gorgeous! I found one I have never seen at our daughter’s new house! I will send a picture!
You are absolutely right! it IS hydrangea heaven. Is Little Honey an oakleaf?
Yes Patti, Little Honey is an oakleaf. The foliage is wonderful.
Gorgeous photos. Have a great week!
