Identifying Different Types of Hydrangeas


My garden pics

Hydrangeas are one of the most bountiful blooms that summer has to offer. The mophead may be the most recognizable hydrangea, but did you know that there are 7 main types of hydrangeas? From the lacecap to the paniculata hydrangea, there are different hydrangea types that actually look quite different from each other.

To help you identify the different types of hydrangeas, FTD created a helpful guide that features real photo examples along with easy care tips. Checkout the guide above, you’ll be sure to learn something new about this gorgeous summer flower!

Be sure to pin for further reference. I am very impressed with FTD's blog. Check it out here because it is very informative and interesting.

Hooray for the red, white and blue

July 4th is a time to celebrate our country. May we  reflect on our heritage, our bountiful blessings, our customs, and our values of freedom and liberty for all.
As we set our holiday tables in red, white and blue and prepare traditional barbecues for family and friends let us reflect on our wonderful country.
