I have never paid much attention to hydrangeas until fairly recently. Now when I see them, I marvel at their complexity, at how each plant can have flowers with variegated colors, how each head unfolds from neutral-toned buds to petals bursting with color. The lacecap varieties intrigue me the most. I came across a patch of mophead-type hydrangeas at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park today. There were several different species in a small area displaying enough variety to make me pause and admire them.
