The Hydrangea Macrophylla nane are a very popular variety of garden flowers, also used to create small curbs and rows of reduced dimensions. Unlike normal hydrangeas, dwarf ones are obviously small and have a more limited development.
Fortunately the flowers and their beauty are identical to normal hydrangeas and this is why dwarf hydrangeas are ideal in contexts where space is limited but you still want to make something flowery, composed and beautiful from an ornamental point of view.
