It is indisputable, hydrangeas are experiencing a renaissance. This humble cottage garden staple is now lauded and rejoiced in; a flower that is becoming not just fashionable, but ultimately desirable. Embraced by floral designers and tastemakers as the epitome of floristry-chic and by landscape architects and home gardeners for their glamorous, versatile and long-lasting blooms.


Celebrating this astonishing flower in all its exuberance, Hydrangeas captures the varying forms and colours that have brought about the ascent of this chameleon bloom.


Following on from the success of Dahlias this contemporary guide features over 50 of the most beautiful hydrangea varieties. From the elegant and airy blooms of Beauté Vendômoise, to bold and brilliant Harlequin, hydrangeas bring style and drama to your garden and home.
