HORTENSIE - A CLASSIC OF COLOR GARDENING
A few years ago, the hydrangea was considered to be bourgeois and out of date, but it is now more popular than ever. This classic brings color to any garden and has become indispensable. Although it needs a lot of water, this plant is very robust and easy to care for.
The botanical name "Hydrangea" translates from Greek as "water jug". The hydrangea really lives up to its botanical name because it has a very high water requirement. If the plant does not get enough water, it quickly lets the flower balls hang. But the hydrangea is not resentful. As soon as she gets enough water again, it doesn't take long and the flowers and leaves straighten up again. For a long time you shouldn't leave the hydrangea without water, like most plants, so that it doesn't dry out.
A few years ago the hydrangea was not so popular in our gardens because it was considered to be bourgeois and out of date and did not fit into the new garden concepts. In the meantime, the hydrangea has regained the hearts of the garden owners and you can find them again in almost every garden. The large flower balls ensure lots of great splashes of color and a wonderful mix of styles in summer.
There is the right hydrangea for every taste. Are you looking for a climbing plant? The best thing for this is the climbing hydrangea on trellis and trellises on the house walls. The hydrangea is very versatile and has one thing in common. Because of the high water demand, these plants prefer a location in partial shade and a well drained soil.
