Nostalgia on the rise

Hydrangeas

We all know them, those bulbs in pastel colours: soft blue, pink, or white. Our collection of hydrangeas, also known as hortensias, can be found under the trees near the Rose Garden. 

The emphasis is on big-leaf hydrangeas (Hydrangea macrophylla), with 120 cut flower varieties, including numerous Belgian selections. You will also discover panicle hydrangeas (H. paniculata), oak-leaf hydrangeas (H. quercifolia), and umbelliferous hydrangeas (H. serrata). 

The presence of some botanically interesting species such as H. longipes and H. sargentiana makes this collection particularly worthwhile. The hydrangea, which started out as a houseplant in the 19th century, is now on the rise again as a garden plant.
