Hydrangeas bloom really nicely from June to July in the rainy season. Seeing a blue or pink hydrangea is really relaxing. It is actually nice to walk around and see these flowers in the rain.
This plant is originally from Japan. There are over 3,000 species, but you can divide them into 2 groups: lacecap hydrangeas and hydrangea macrophylla. The original one is called lacecap hydrangea and the one we see more often is called hydrangea macrophylla.
Much of what we usually see now is the hydrangea that went through selective breeding in Europe. This type of hydrangea is called western hydrangea. Hydrangea macrophylla blooms like a ball. The hydrangea has many different meanings according to the color and type. Let’s see some of those meanings.
