Hydrangea Aspera Macrophylla
These plants, originating in China, are shade-loving species and do not tolerate direct exposure to the sun's rays. This is because they are very sensitive varieties and the intense heat of the sun's rays could burn the leaves.
Let's start to see what are the characteristics of the Macrophylla hydrangea:
Height: around 300 centimeters
Leaf: dark green, elliptical, with a straight edge
Inflorescence: convex, numerous fertile purple flowers at the center of the circle, just below, with sterile pinkish white (lacecap). Characteristic bush with large leaves, velvety on both sides. Of considerable size, both in terms of height and width, it requires shady positions and ample space, which gives it an imposing appearance.
Hydrangea Aspera Mauvette
Height: around 200 centimeters
Leaf: light green, elliptical, toothed margin
Inflorescence: fertile flowers in the center surrounded by sterile, both intense lilac color
Hydrangea similar to the 'macrophylla' has a slightly smaller leaf, lighter in color, less velvety on the lower side, with a central red vein. The inflorescence is instead more convex, the fertile flowers turn to dark red in autumn, while the sterile ones lend themselves to be dried and, turning so to blue-gray, they give an autumnal touch to the compositions. As for the 'Macrophylla', it is a bush of considerable size and, like it, needs shady positions and adequate spaces.
Hydrangea Aspera Villosa
Height: hardly exceeds 250 centimeters
Leaf: dark green, lanceolate, opaque and silky on the upper side, gray and fluffy on the lower one, serrated edge
Flowering: later than the other aspera, from the end of July to September
Inflorescence: the form is that of lacecap, fertile pinkish-white flowers, the sterile gathered in corymbs about 15 cm wide, of a pale purple and composed of four sepals with a slightly narrow margin.
Shrub native to China where it sprouts in nature, roundish, with angular and hairy branches. Delicate, excellent at the base of walls, it particularly loves shady and wind-sheltered positions. The branches, thin and sinuous, give a light, irregular and luminous appearance.
Hydrangea Aspera Sargentiana
Height: around 400 centimeters
Leaf: opaque green, elliptical, very broad, velvety on both sides, double teeth on the edges
Flowering: from July to August to September
Inflorescence: lacecap, the fertile pale purple, the sterile, composed of four sepals, white
The largest in size, this aspera, which like the others needs shady positions, reaches 200 centimeters in width and reaches over 400 in height. Precisely for this reason, the white sterile flowers appear disproportionately small due to the size of the bush and the inflorescence, but remain highly decorative. The entire plant, due to its imposing size, its leaves, petioles and hairy branches, offers something more to the large gardens: an unusual air and a spade halfway between the majestic and the regal.
