The hydrangea is a part of a large group of flowering plants that contains about 250 species. They are most known for their flowering clusters that may appear mounded, rounded, flat, or spiked. Hydrangea shrubs grow in hardiness zones 3 to 7 as perennials. At maturity, Hydrangea shrubs will grow 8-15 ft tall and 6-12 ft wide. Hydrangea shrubs can handle a variety of well-drained soil types, including sandy, loamy, and clay. The hydrangea will grow to approximately 25 or more inches per year until it reaches maturity. The shrub is good for morning sun and partial shade throughout the day. The shrubs are typically cup-shaped with winged seeds. They also have tendencies to be berry-like in shape. Each flower will have four to five petals and vary in color. The color of the petals is contingent on the soil used. The landscaping use for the hydrangea is suitable as a shrub or perennial border as they can skirt around the legs of gazebos or garden structures.
