FACTS & HISTORY: Hydrangeas dates back to over 23 million years ago! A fossil species called Hydrangea alaskana was found on Jaw Mountain in Alaska, USA, from a section of rock dating back to the paleogene period (which dates from 66 million to 23 million years ago).
Fossils have also been discovered more recently in Asia, the continent with which Hydrangeas are more strongly associated and where it is recorded that people first started cultivating the species, thousands of years ago.
Asian varieties first made their way to Europe in 1775, when Swedish naturalist Carl Peter Thunberg brought five plants back to the continent when returning from a trip to Asia. Since then, the plant has been ever popular in gardens across the Northern Hemisphere, where it is best suited to the cooler, wetter climate.
