"Thou blossom bright with autumn dew,
And colored with the heaven's own blue"
- from 'to the fringed gentian', William Cullen Bryant, U.S. poet
there are two flower arrangements in hydrangeas: mophead flowers are large round flowerheads resembling pom-poms or, as the name implies, the head of a mop; in contrast, lacecap flowers bear round, flat flowerheads with a center core of subdued, fertile flowers surrounded by outer rings of showy, sterile flowers, like the one shown here.
