Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Lemon Wave’
at Digging Dog

Hydrangea macrophylla Lemon Wave

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.

The unusual foliage of this smaller statured Hydrangea will surely bring a “wave” of interest to a shady garden spot. Each leaf is uniquely marked: some are porcelain to cream with lemon yellow margins. Others are green, ranging from emerald through mint to chartreuse. The lacecap flowers can vary in color as well, all the way from white to mauve to blue.

Blooms June–August.

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