A Museum Quality Botanical Print of the Garden Hydrangea as originally published in the Botanical Magazine in the year 1799. This picture shows a large pink bloom with buds at the top that haven't completely opened and are green in color. The popular botanical journal described the Hydrangea thus - This magnificent and highly ornamental plant was introduced from China to the Royal Garden at Kew by Sir Joseph Banks in 1790.This plant blooms from June until October and when successfully treated will acquire the height of around 3 feet and produce bunches of flowers that are supremely magnificent. The author was mystified about this plant would sometimes bloom pink and then later the same plant in the same location would change and bloom blue, since this flower was still new in the year 1799, it wasn't yet known that the amount of acid in the soil determines the color of the bloom. This flower must have been all the rage in England during this era, as the Botanical Magazine allowed about 3 pages for the description of this hydrangea when most flowers were described in 1 page or less.
