Ooh, what good value they are in terms of flower heads! I have just seen some intriguing pointy ones at Tatton Park on BBC2...
Please do not tempt me with pointy ones - I can feel myself falling into a deep pit of hydrangea obsession and I have not got the room for any more. .
Hmm. Still not convinced...
It's an age thing - you are younger than me. The revelation will come.
Also saw some interesting Hydrangeas on the Tatton Show TV prog - James Wong was doing the PR for these plants, pointing out that there is a flower head type for all tastes and sensibilities.
Christopher Lloyd writes very amusingly about Hydrangea snobbery: '[Lacecaps] are the only types worth growing, according to the sensitive (but self-conscious) man of taste.' The Well-Tempered Garden.
Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
