Where could these go on the data base. I see listings for specific colors bu not for multiple colors?

You could put a request for a general page for Hydrangea, Paul , in the Plant Database forum

Thanks Sue...I understand that knowing a cultivars name is a worthy goal but it seems like I keep running into lovely unnamed hybrids in some plants. In iris, roses, daylilies, and many other things I want to know which one it is but in other things it is hard. I've been buying some Saintpaulia for a bright east facing window and have found some beauties but none are named. I could send away for named varieties but the name isn't important to me. Iris I keep carefully labeled, roses are mapped, hosta,labeled and mapped for example but I have some wonderful Rudbeckia plants that are self sown seedlings and I love them. I make every effort to ID a plant but sometimes that is impossible so a general page is good but for some things, iris roses, hosta, etc. I think it should be a place for other things than many NOID blooms. Make sense? Just my opinion.

I think hydrangeas are pretty impossible to ID because the colors are so often dependent on the soil conditions. At least we have these general pages to add nice photos too. If they get too loaded with photos, some can be added to page 2.
