Species - macrophylla – Mopheads

Hydrangea macrophylla is native of China, Korea, and the Himalayas.  The original form; H.macrophylla var.normalis has broad leaves and lacecap flower heads with mostley small fertile florets surounded by a few of the larger sterile florets. However, intensive breeding programs soon produced improved lacecap cultivars and cultivars with very few or no fertile florets.  The result of this, is a change in the flower shape from flat to large globe shaped flower heads.  This is the typical Mophead Hydrangea also called Hydrangea ‘Hortensis’
