|Design Ideas||Hydrangeas are a gorgeous foundation plant, large enough for solid color throughout the growing season, with a bonus of gorgeous flowers. Plant in problem acidic soils beneath canopies of shade trees or even smaller accent trees. Very bright flowers are attention-getters at focal points, and planting in groups intensifies this overall effect. Good for edging outdoor living spaces with cooling, rich green foliage and close up appreciation of huge flower trusses. A vital component of a florist's or crafter's landscape when massed to provide plentiful cutting material.|
