Underestimated for too long as just a shrub for cottage gardens, the hydrangea is experiencing a renaissance in floral design. Lavish and luscious, the often-giant blooms are the epitome of chic. The next title in Pavilion’s series of beautiful floral gardening guides celebrates the ornamental charm and butterfly-like petals of the hydrangea.

This title celebrates the history and main varieties of the hydrangea, from its origins in China, Japan and Korea, to how they have taken over most gardens in the world. To this day, pink hydrangeas are popular in Asia, as they are given as love tokens, and most recently, a hydrangea hybrid won Plant of the Year at the 2018 RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Pavilion’s guide to the most beautiful varieties reveals their fascinating assets together with practical cultivation tips for any garden or container. Including delicate blooms such as the raspberry ripple Miss Soari and the beautiful Annabelle, to the full-on and fabulous Glam Rock and the weirdly wonderful Limelight.

With engaging commentary on each bloom, easy-to-follow advice and glorious photography, this book will appeal to everybody who is after the best bloom for weddings, gardens of any size, or looking for the most bountiful cut flowers.
