Which hydrangea do you like best? I love all types.

6月の梅雨で、一番きれいな花はアジサイでしょうか。色と種類が多いですが、僕は全部、大好きです。最近、伊豆の小さな田んぼのよこで、アジサイが咲いていたのを見ました。

I love all types of hydrangea. They are always so oversized, and particularly well suited to Japan’s rainy season. I like the elegant ones that bloom more sparingly, and also the giant pom pom types that come in so many different shades. Recently we saw hydrangea planted on the border of small rice fields in Izu.

  1. Mmmh, I am definitely one for the big mophead types, especially if the flowerheads themselves are huge and the individual flowers and bracts are rather small, as in a lot of the older cultivars. The lacecaps are more refined, but in the garden I prefer unrestrained abundance.
