I read that the native americans used the root of the Hydrangea as a diuretic , to cleanse toxins. The language of Flowers say that the flower means boastful, and heartless. I have also read that they mean preservation , and that is why they are a good choice for wedding flowers. I like them no matter what they mean. To me they mean Flamboyance. I love showy flowers.
The rest of the flowers are not doing very well this year
I have some Zinnias with buds , I hope they bloom and not dry up.
I separated this hydrangea last fall
