French Hydrangeas

withDavid Doggett

David Doggett

French Hydrangeas (Hydrangea macrophyllaandH. serrata) – also known as Garden or Bigleaf Hydrangeas – are actually native to Asia. These are the blue, pink, or white mophead and lacecap blooming shrubs found in most every Southern garden. This program looks at many of the older varieties as well as the new spectacular flower forms being introduced every year. We'll discuss the importance of the new Endless Summer repeat bloomers and their profound impact on the market.
