  1. Ferdy, I believe and I may be wrong, that these flowers are Lace-cape Hydrangeas. I was doing a little research on Rosa canina and for some reason the photos (I believe there a six and macro) are of Hydrangea macrophylla normalis. Just my thoughts. Gary Posted 7 months ago
    1. Thanks so much, Gary, for being so sharp. Indeed it looks like I got this one wrong. I suck at identifying flowers but was even worse in 2012. Fixed! Posted 7 months ago
      1. Hey, you are more than welcome. It just happened that I have been struggling with identifying a wild/introduced rose for the last three days and was searching for options and confirmation... anywhere, JD included! Gary Posted 7 months ago
        1. I can recommend the app Pl@ntnet, it uses image recognition. I even just take photos from my smartphone of the screen and it still kind of works. At least it often gives me a solid direction. Posted 7 months ago
          1. I shall have to look into that app. Thanks, Gary Posted 7 months ago

''Hydrangea macrophylla'' is a species of ''Hydrangea'' native to Japan. Common names include Bigleaf Hydrangea, French Hydrangea, Lacecap Hydrangea, Mophead Hydrangea, Penny Mac and Hortensia. It is widely cultivated in many parts of the world in many climates.

''Hydrangea macrophylla'' blossoms can be either pink, blue, or purple shades, depending on a pH-dependent mobilization and uptake of soil aluminium into the plants.
