Mopheads and Lacecaps
These well known, traditional hydrangeas were introduced from Asia before the turn of the century. Most of the Asian species of hydrangeas have either a large ball or cone (panicle) of flowers or a flat lacy cap of flowers. You can find hydrangea flowers in colors ranging from blue to pink to lime green. There are dwarf varieties like 'Pinky Winky' and varieties like 'Endless Summer' that bloom from spring through summer.
