Giant Hydrangea-Hortensia pictures

Welcome to Macro Flowers Saturday #66!

I can't wait to see your beautiful flowers.
I have something unusual for you today: giant hydrangeas.

Hydrangea to some, Hortensia to others, they have different meanings in different parts of the world.
Whether delicate pink or striking neon blue, they can all be a breathtaking summer display.

To some it is a symbol of ego and vanity, to others a symbol of repayment for understanding.

Pink hydrangeas generally mean, "You are the beat of my heart".
"The light delicate blush of the petals reminds me of a beating heart, while the size could only match the heart of the sender!"
~ Tan Jun Yong -Asian florist
If that is so than I have a very big heart today, like these giant hydrangea flowers.

These hydrangeas have a huge flower head, about twice the size of a human head, not to mention that they are just young plants. They have them at the garden center but there was no reference to the species. I've never seen anything like this in "real life", have you?

Here is a slightly different shade with some purple in the middle of the tiny flowers.
