From the exquisite lacecaps to the blowzy mopheads, the hydrangea is enjoying a renaissance among American gardeners. This volume showcases the vast array of the hydrangea's charms: its legend and lore including the mysteries of its colors; varieties that climb or grow in containers; the range of species, from wild to oak-leaf to Sargent. In addition, you'll learn how best to dry hydrangeas, how to make the most prudent cut, what other plants make the "best neighbors"--even how best to accent them with garden structures and trees. Complete with a list of display gardens and sources, no other book pays homage to the lasting contribution and lush blooms of these treasured garden plants.
