Comment
Hydrangea macrophylla (scaly hydrangea, scientific name: Hydrangea macrophylla f.normalis) is native to Japan and is a cold-resistant deciduous shrub of the hydrangeae family. Hemispherical hydrangea (hydrangea) was bred from this species. When looking at a flower as a lump (one piece of clothes), the small purple purple color in the center of the flower is a flower (an amphoteric flower), and the one that looks like a flower around it is decorative flowers (sepals). The Japanese name was given because it has a decorator around the flower and looks like a picture frame.
