Hydrangea macrophylla Enziandom

Hydrangea

The name Hydrangea, means “water vessel,” given for its cup-shaped seed vessels. A genus of diverse forms, Hydrangeas are commonly found throughout Asia, from the Himalayas to Taiwan and Japan, with the exception of two species, Hydrangea arborescens and Hydrangea quercifolia, which are native to North America.

Easily grown, this shrub’s lush deciduous leaves are best suited to loose, moist soil in the shade of tall trees or on the north side of the house. If, like us, you’ve tired of the commoner sort, these delicacies will be a welcome surprise.

Bred nearly 70 years ago, this vivid, bright cobalt blue mophead is coveted by both florists and landscapers. Overlapping, white-eyed cupped florets mature to pure blue, taking on a flatter appearance, while the large gorgeous blooms later exhibit rich plum hues dappled with smoky blue tinges.

Second-to-none for cutting and drying, the lavish flowers can last through October, festooning a medium-sized, coarse textured shrub whose dark green, maroon edged leaves transmute coppery wine autumnal shades. Euphorbia longifolia’s chartreuse floral bracts create a flashy union.

Blooms July – October.

Size: 3'–4' high x 5' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Our favorite plant this week - We love Echinops 'Blue Glow' for its uniquely shaped flowers in the border or a cut arrangement. Intensely blue, the surreal-looking globes of this Echinops perch on stalks lined with elegant, jagged-edged gray-green foliage. Backlit by the late afternoon sun and planted en masse, ‘Blue Glow’s flowers seem to float amidst spiky Muhlenbergia rigens and the dark domes of Angelica gigas. Echinops 'Blue Glow'
