Hydrangea plants are common in Kentlands, our home community in Gaithersburg, Maryland. They may be a good addition for your home garden. Colors will vary with the soil conditions. Many growing tips are available if you do a Google search. 

 

Subhash Sharma  "These unique lovely flowers of multiple blooms have blue, red, pink, light purple, or dark purple colour depending upon the soil pH. An acidic soil (pH below 7) will usually produce flower colour closer to blue, whereas an alkaline soil (pH above 7) will produce flowers more pink. This is caused by a colour change of the flower pigments in in the presence of aluminium ions which can be taken up into hyperaccumulating plants. Apart from these different colour flowers the plant has various other qualities. Amacha (sweet tea) is a Japanese beverage made from fermented leaves of Hydrangea macrophylla .Hydrangeae Dulcis Folium is a drug made from the fermented and dried leaves of H. macrophylla var. thunbergii with possible anti-allergic and antimicrobial properties on which the work is still going on."

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend from India. He now lives in Ireland and frequently comments on my photographs.

Is that what is known as a "Lace Cap" hydrangea, Roy?

P.S.: hydrangeas have long been one of my favorites -- the shrubs look lush and soft, but in reality are sturdy and hardy.

Roy,

That "lace cap" hydrangea is one we don't see often here.  I saw so many when we were in Virginia.  They are really beautiful.  A

One side of the house that I grew up in had a long row of Hydrangeas.  I miss them!

Hi Roy... I adore hydrangeas and have two big bushes in front of my home. They did not flower well last year, but have made up for it this year in spades!

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Area Realtor (RE/MAX Executive | Charlotte, NC) about 1 year ago

Roy,

 I too adore hydrangeas they are one of my favorite a little hard to grow in this Texas heat but I have a couple of small plants!
