Hydrangeas

This Hydrangea 'Blue Boy' is referred to as a lace-cap. There are three shapes of blooms on Hydrangeas. The flat and fertile flowers called lace-cap as depicted below, the 'conical' form and the third is a ball shape often referred to as a 'mop head'.

Hydrangeas

This particular specimen is quite large almost five feet tall and a diameter which is close to five feet. The pretty blooms are prolific and I have two situated on either side of my cabana. They add such elegance nestled among the evergreens and the beautiful blooms add color to the area which is void with the exception of foliage, evergreens and variegated leaves. Of course the annuals give a splash of color to the area but it is always a pleasure to locate a shrub that will flower for most of the summer months. Hydrangeas are high performers due to the length of bloom, the size of bloom and the ability to change their color.
