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?”
