Common Name(s) Hydrangea
Description Hydrangea is a shrub that is generally 3-9 ft tall with very large simple leaves and in spring form large flowerheads at the end of the stems. Generally, some can produce two types of flowers,small fertile flowers in the middle of the flowerhead, and large, sterile bract-like around the edge of the each flower head. Other species have all fertile flower and they are all the same size. Flower color rances from white to pink, red, purple and blue.
