Colorful hydrangeas add dramatic appeal to the landscape

There may be no other plant that can change the look of a landscape like hydrangea. With their large, textured leaves and large, showy mophead-type flowers, hydrangeas can transform a cheerful garden space into a colorful, visually interesting, almost dreamlike landscape with their oversized blooms that can bloom from the May to fall months. Hydrangea's blooms remaining on the plant during the winter provide a visually attractive addition to a barren winter landscape.

The popularity of hydrangeas among home gardeners has increased over the past several years, likely due to the proliferation of new varieties of hydrangea available in varying plant sizes, growth characteristics, flower types and colors, and leaf shapes. There are six species of hydrangea commonly grown in Ohio including: smooth hydrangea, tree hydrangea; Oak leaf hydrangea, Hydrangea hydrangea; Hydrangea bigleaf, Hydrangea large; Mountain hydrangea, Hydrangea serrate; Climbing hydrangea, Hydrangea hydrangea; Hydrangea panicula, Hydrangea panicula. Gardeners will find many different cultivars of each of these types of hydrangea.
