In my garden, Hydrangeas are the gift that just keeps giving.  From June until frost there is always a Hydrangea in bloom here.  Once you start growing Hydrangeas you just can’t stop adding them to your garden.  Just ask Michael Dirr, the famous plantsman, who has written an entire book on Hydrangeas, “Hydrangeas for American Gardens”.   While researching for his book in England, Dr. Dirr visited a garden with approximately 360 cultivars of Hydrangea macrophylla.  In his words, “The mind became mush, the knees buckled, and the camera imploded.”  And that was just one species!
