Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Madame Emile Mouillère’
at Digging Dog

Hydrangea macrophylla Madame Emile Mouillère

June – August.

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.

Gracing gardens for an entire century, this vintage French glamor queen parades quantities of large, pure white flower clusters. The rounded mopheads include tightly packed serrated florets, which eventually open wide and push up against one another to produce a frilly feminine silhouette.

Blooming on both old and new wood, and appreciating protection from hot sun, the stylish blossoms bounce back after a rain, unfurl until late in the season, and make unparalleled cut flowers, fresh or dried, while showcasing soft pink and lime-green brush strokes as they age.

The tall robust frame, supported by unspotted stems and smooth, notched glossy green foliage, can be situated along a sheltered shady garden wall or the north side of a house.

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