Hydrangea Happenings

posted, 09/04/06
The Hybridizers have been working overtime on creating new and improved cultivars of Hydrangeas and there
are some really nice cultivars out there. In todays NY Times a nice article on the newest happenings in the world
of Hydrangeas.

Heres a good follow-up article in the trade from the Oregon Nursery Association

As I look around I do not see any slowing down here of the trend to find ways to add more Hydrangeas to the landscape. Spectacular colors and color form, large flowers, great for cutting, a variety of sizes, added fall interest, ease of growing. This is where the hybridizers are going.

A link to the American Hydrangea Society.

Finally this is a site from an amateur grower who really loves Hydrangeas, what makes it great is her obvious enthusiasm.
