Re: AG - hydrangeas


Not to take anything away from Gene, but there's also an article on
Hydrangeas by Richard Bir, a writer who knows his stuff.
He writes, "....25 to 50 hydrangea species  are recognized, but only 5 are
commonly seen in American landscapes."  He names those 5 as:
macrophylla (big leaf), petiolaris (climbing), quercifolia (oakleaf),
paniculata (panicled), arborescens (smooth)

But he makes no mention at all of H. serrata (Tea of Heaven Hydrangeas)
which are quite popular.  I realize some old references classify serrata as
a subspecies of macrophylla, but he doesn't mention them under the macs.  It
just seemed odd that serrata didn't deserve even the briefest mention. A few
serratas you may have hear of are Bluebird, Beni-gaku, and Preziosa.
