Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Mathilda Gutges’
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.

Widely acclaimed in many gardening circles as one of the best Hortensias, this compact eye-catching Hydrangea sports a deciduous medium growth habit, lustrous dark green elliptical leaves and big colorful frilly mopheads. The close-knit midsummer flowers are defined by large prominently serrated sepals and opulent prismatic shades that range from yellowish green, deep blue and royal purple to pink, depending on the soil pH. Long lasting, plentiful, ideal for bouquets, fresh or dried, and intensely pigmented, ‘Mathilda Gutges’s blooms promise to please.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
