Hydrangea

Our hydrangea is in full bloom this week in our patio garden. Hydrangeas are a common ornamental plant grown the world over. But their greatest diversity is in East Asia where many of the 70-75 species are originally from. I am seeing them all over the city. They are similar to the azaleias, another East Asian plant that is grown in gardens all over the world.

You can see the light blue flowers below. They are from another cultivar that we purchased in flower a couple of months ago, but they lost their color quite rapidly. The purple above we purchased last spring and this is their second bloom.
