One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Hydranges are flowering now; the Asian Collection has a large selection of cultivars and species
(from the top) Hydrangea serrata 'Zankoriana'; H. serrata 'Bluebird'; H. serrata 'Purple Tiers'
This is another group of plants that had just begun to flower when I left two weeks ago for Florida. Now most of the Lacecaps (~Hydrangea serrata~) are blooming. The mopheads (~Hydrangea macrophylla~) will come later.
