Hydrangea shrubs, known for their impressive voluminous blooms, are a popular addition to many gardens and landscapes. Hydrangeas, scientifically known as Hydrangea Macrophylla, are native to Japan, China, and Korea, and belong to the Hydrangeaceae family. Their large flower heads come in a variety of colors, including blue, pink, purple, and white.
One of the fascinating aspects of hydrangeas is that the color of their flowers can change based on the soil pH. In acidic soils, the flowers tend to be blue, while in alkaline soils, they lean towards pink. This color-changing ability adds an element of intrigue to these already captivating plants.
Hydrangea shrubs typically have broad, dark green leaves that provide an attractive backdrop to their blooms. The blooms are composed of small, fertile flowers surrounded by larger, showy sterile flowers, creating a lush and full appearance. This distinctive floral structure is what makes hydrangeas so visually appealing and sought after in garden design.
