Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Maculata’
at Digging Dog

Hydrangea

The name Hydrangea, means “water vessel,” given for its cup-shaped seed vessels. A genus of diverse forms, Hydrangeas are commonly found throughout Asia, from the Himalayas to Taiwan and Japan, with the exception of two species, Hydrangea arborescens and Hydrangea quercifolia, which are native to North America.

Easily grown, this shrub’s lush deciduous leaves are best suited to loose, moist soil in the shade of tall trees or on the north side of the house. If, like us, you’ve tired of the commoner sort, these delicacies will be a welcome surprise.

Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Maculata’ full sun  partial shade

Broad serrated mint green leaves, artfully bordered or otherwise splashed with porcelain white, give you good reason to grow this moderately sized dome-shaped Hydrangea. Viewed from a distance, the variegated foliage translates to soothing olive-hued tones, effectively creating a lush first-rate oasis in the midst of deep greens and finer textured plants. The classy lacecaps, which sport tiny fertile deep gentian blue florets surrounded by large sterile pale blue petals, are the icing on the cake. Well-suited for gardens where space is limited, �Maculata� prospers in dappled light and well-drained, somewhat moist soil.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 4' 0"–5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.
