Hydrangea_Hortensia-4[1]

Hortensia garden

The Hortensia or Hydrangea garden contains a great variety of impressive hydrangeas. The taller plants along the edges of the garden are complemented by smaller plants in the center of the beds, and highlighted by a number of woodland and other perennial plants. The color palette of this garden runs from pink to white to blue. The mophead (bigleaf hydrangea), lacecap (mountain hydrangea), and cone panicle (hydrangea paniculata) flowers add variety to the color display. The cone-shaped flowers of the oakleaf hydrangea form a contrast to its lush foliage, and the climbing hydrangea gives structure (and color) to its corner of the garden.
