These are not your grandmother’s hydrangeas.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Gertrud Glahn' is a very attractive medium-sized shrub with large bright pink or light blue mophead flowerheads, 140mm across.
Hydrangea aspera 'Plum Passion' is a smaller aspera, primarily grown for its interestingly coloured foliage, not for its rather bland flowers.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Harlequin' has striking and unusual bicoloured flowers on strong stems. White picoted edges surround each deep pink sepal.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Hilary's Blue Lace' is a large vigorous shrub with deep green foliage and large purple-blue lacecap flowers.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Merritt's Supreme' is a compact shrub, usually not exceeding 1.5m. Strong stems support the dense mophead flowers.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'King George' is a late-flowering shrub with flowerheads still showing in November in southern B.C.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Rotdrossel' is one of our top hydrangeas due to its intensely coloured lacecap flowerheads in either dark red or purple.
