Isn't this a nice fall effect with massed Hydrangeas?

Betty, one of our volunteers, got me interested in the fall value of Hydrangea serrata 'Beni Gaku'. Now I'm looking around and I see other attractive examples. This planting is identified in our records as Hydrangea macrophylla var. macrophylla. The seed was wild collected by Skip March in Japan in 1982. Most of us probably don't have the room for mass plantings of Hydrangeas but this sure is nice. It has lovely blue flowers in summer so the area looks good through the growing season into the fall.
