When I visited this garden just outside of Vancouver it was in the middle of July in 1998. Talk about hydrangeas! All types, colors and forms of hydrangeas were in full bloom and the show was magnificent! I especially like the lace cap types since they are hard to grow in my part of the world. They must have a naturally acid soil too since all the colors were most vivid.
