Hydrangea View – Jindai Botanical Gardens, Tokyo
Hydrangea common names hydrangea or hortensia, is a genus of over 75 species of flowering plants native to Asia and the Americas.
By far the greatest species diversity is in eastern Asia, notably China, Korea, and Japan.
Most are shrubs 1–3 m (3 ft 3 in – 9 ft 10 in) tall, but some are small trees, and others lianas reaching up to 30 m (100 ft) by climbing up trees.
They can be either deciduous or evergreen, though the widely cultivated temperate species are all deciduous.
Jindai Botanical Garden (神代植物公園) is at the edge of the Musashino plateau just above Jindaiji Temple in Chofu, Tokyo.
