DSCF7056The Glades, a woodland garden within the whole that is The Savill Garden, holds an impressive selection of mature trees and shrubs and a more recently planted collection of hydrangeas – of every type and hue. This might be their third year, though some specimens seems a little more mature while other swathes of plants appear to be very young and quite new to the scheme. Planted en masse, with large numbers of individuals of the same cultivar planted amongst an impressive overall number of macrophyllas, paniculatas, quercifolias, arborescens,  asperas….

Hydrangea paniculata Phantom was planted in two large groupings though one was perhaps only a couple of years old, the one photographed here more mature than that. The steely blue and purples of the macrophylla Bela, also took my fancy though that list might include any of the one pictured here and more besides.
