More Hydrangeas.

Evening all. The Hydrangeas continue to astound, what marvellous shrubs they are with such variety of flower colour, shape and form.

I know some people consider the lacecaps to be more subtle, but I love all types. Having said that, the lacecap in the first photo is splendid and quite beautiful.

The lacecap in the second photo has these lovely white flowers and these are very different in colour to the Hydrangea featured in the first shot. No names for either, I'm afraid.

The Hydrangea in the third photo is H. aspera macrophylla, which is very different in form from the other Hydrangeas in my garden and is just as beautiful.

Splendid it is, Sean.  I like hydrangeas too and they give a great display all summer.

Thanks Joan. They get better year after year, if that's possible.

Rhodos over but the delights of your garden continue. I have Annabell and Limelight and one bluish lacecap. I prefer lacecap to mopheads but they give such glorious colour. many thanks for sharing

Thanks a million, Scrubber. I still have R. polar bear to come. Watch this space.

Beautiful, Sean. I would say that it is a great year for hydrangeas, despite that compared with other years we have less rain and the name hydrangea speaks for itself.

I absolutely adore Hydrangeas of every variety. Your photos are gorgeous.
