Bigleaf Hydrangeas

Bigleaf Hydrangeas

Bigleaf Hydrangeas (also known as Hydrangea macrophylla) were originally cultivated in China and Japan. For gardeners in colder zones, recent introductions are more likely to flower on new growth as well as year-old stems, which means blooms generally appear even after a tough winter. These hydrangeas are a good choice for coastal areas also since many varieties tolerate wind and salt spray.
