Top Shade Perennials: Hydrangea

Hydrangeas been the choice of gardeners for generations with continuous blooms from mid-summer to autumn depending on variety. These woody shrubs come in all sizes to suit any setting. Depending on the species, you can have rounded or cylindrical shaped blooms in a wide range of colors and various leaf shapes. Newer varieties even change bloom colors as the season progresses! You can find blooms in an array of colors like lavender, blue, pink, red, white, and green. As you probably guessed, they get their name because they do like to water. Be sure to prune and care for your Hydrangea based on their species. Some bloom on new growth and others on old wood, so a little homework will go quite a ways in ensuring a beautiful blooming shrub for years to come!
