Description: Hydrangea common names hydrangea or hortensia) is a genus of 70–75 species of flowering plants. Most are shrubs 1 to 3 meters tall, but some are small trees, and others lianas reaching up to 30 m (98 ft) by climbing up trees. They can be either deciduous or evergreen, though the widely cultivated temperate species are all deciduous. Hydrangea flowers are produced from early spring to late autumn; they grow in flower heads (corymbs or panicles) at the ends of the stems. In many species, the flower heads contain two types of flowers, small fertile flowers in the middle of the flower head, and large, sterile bract-like flowers in a ring around the edge of each flower head. Other species have all the flowers sterile and of the same size. In most species the flowers are white, but in some species (notably H. macrophylla), can be blue, red, pink, light purple, or dark purple. Hydrangeas are popular ornamental plants, grown for their large flower heads.
Care: Hydrangeas need well-draining soil, and are best planted in a spot that gets morning sun and afternoon shade. Deep or constant shade is not suitable for hydrangeas, and neither is full sun. Pick a spot where your hydrangeas will be exposed to at least three to four hours of sun per day.
