Still need some help? Try her other resources that she gives you that are on the internet. There is something for everyone and if you are looking for a starter book on this subject or, like me, you love to collect hydrangeas, take out this useful book.

This was a very good reference book filled with beautiful photo's. It helped me in making a decision on which hydrangeas I needed to plant in my midwest landscape.

I find this to be a more interesting and informative book that was able to fill in some informational gaps that I see I had missed in other books on this subject. and did it in a easy to read, fun way.Thanks!

Written by a true authority on the hydrangea plant classes and their strengths, this book is very helpful to have in the home library. It was a great source for me as I taught others about the types to grow in our Central Florida climate where it is very hot.

This is one of several books that I have on hydrangeas. I found it to be a well written book filled with information that is useful, and easy to understand. There was information in it that was not in current books I have on the subject. This is a must for any gardener that is looking to purchase their first hydrangea of for those that have many. You can't go wrong here.

This book is the best resource for hydrangeas I've come across and is fabulous for the photos alone! This is a complete, comprehensive book giving you all the information you need to know about hydrangeas and one I thoroughly enjoy!

highly detailed and authoritative, yet still easy to read.Very well illustrated with descriptions of named varieties, discussion of native range of the species, etc
