Hydrangea flowers are spectacular for cutting and drying for winter arrangements, and there is a variety to suit every gardener and every garden.
Hydrangea macrophylla is the one everybody knows, big, blowsy mop-heads with rounded flower-heads. While Hydrangea paniculata has stunning conical flowerheads, with showy sterile florets surrounding the smaller fertile flowers. There is even a climber, Hydrangea anomala subsp. petiolaris, which is self-clinging (meaning it doesn't need a support) and is ideal for a north-facing wall.
