Hydrangea Sargentiana / Samthortensie

I found this big blossom on a tree in the park and found it quite intriguing. I’d need both of my hands to cover it. There was a sign beside it saying it is a Hydrangea Sargentiana native to China.

Diese Riesenblüte ist mir neulich im Park aufgefallen. Ich würde beide Hände brauchen, um sie zu bedecken. Das Schild daneben verriet, dass es sich um eine Samthortensie aus China handelt.

    • The entire arrangement is one blossom. The little purple parts are fertile, the little white ones are not. I presume they help attract insects to the plant.
