Hydrangea macrophylla 'Zankoriana' (top) and Hydrangea macrophylla 'Domotoi'
Hydrangea season has been going on for almost three weeks now and most varieties are on their way out or just about gone....not all of them though. I have been watching the nice soft pink double mophead 'Domotoi' and just now have some of its heads reached maturity; still if you look towards the back of the picture there are heads that still have a week to go before they'll color up. It's always good to have selections available to stretch the season.
This season was easily stretched with its superabundance of rain and generally cool temperatures. We got our money's worth from all the Hydrangeas this year!
'Zankoriana' is fully open and the flowers are perfect; it's a spectacular plant, but curiously, unGoogleable. I must investigate further.
