Hydrangea Macrophylla - a sea of white flowers in shady corners of the garden
The hydrangea varieties known under the name of farmers' hydrangea or garden hydrangea are äußerst robust half shrubs that attract all eyes with their decorative large flowers. Originally from Japan, the hydrangea is one of the most popular garden plants in the world, and not just because of its beauty.
Hortensias are undemanding and easy to care for
Farmers' hydrangeas with white flowers of the Hydrangea Macrophylla variety produce beautiful spherical flowers from July to September, which are very attractive not only during the flowering season. Even in their bright green bud state, the large flowers of the hydrangea attract all eyes. Even after flowering, the hydrangea's flower stalks are still very pretty to look at and make an attractive decorative element when dried. The hydrangea reaches a maximum height of 120cm and is an asset to any garden, not least because of its undemanding nature. The hydrangea loves a semi-shady spot and does very well in normal garden soil. Hydrangeas are very robust and require little care.
There is no need to prune the hydrangea
Hortensias form their new flower buds directly under the old, faded flower buds. Pruning in autumn would therefore easily lead to the death of the flower buds in frost. In the case of hydrangeas, if at all, the old flower buds should be carefully cut off with garden shears in spring. The garden hydrangea in particular does not necessarily have to be cut back. With a white flowering hydrangea you are choosing a highly decorative yet low-maintenance attraction in your garden.
The hydrangea is an enrichment in every garden
No other hydrangea variety blooms as long as the garden hydrangea. With its large white and eye-catching flowers, the cottage hydrangea suits many garden styles. This hydrangea, which originates from Japan, is ideal for Asian-style gardens as well as for classical planting in cottage gardens and English gardens. Hydrangea is equally suitable for planting under tall trees and shrubs or as a front planting for shrubs and bamboo. Hydrangeas are at their best when planted as specimen plants. But you can also use the white flowering hydrangea as a hedge plant. Due to its rather slow growth and the abundance of flowers, Hydrangea Macrophylla is also a popular pot plant that adds a romantic flair to your patio or balcony with its sea of flowers throughout the summer.
Hortensia flowers attract attention because of their size and bulkiness. Plants with a more discreet appearance are therefore particularly suitable as planting partners. In this way, the abundance of flowers of the hydrangea is optimally brought into focus. Particularly suitable planting partners for hydrangeas are, for example, hostas or styleflowers
