Hydrangea


Anonymous added on March 5, 2018 | Answered

I am a bit confused. I glean so much useful and what has proven to me to be accurate information from Gardening Know How. What now concerns me is how Gardening Know How spells this species of hydrangea: macrophilia. I have looked on quite a few additional websites and the species has been spelled: macrophylla. No where other than Gardening Know How have I seen the spelling that ends with "philia." Please explain. Christine

You are correct. Good catch. For the word nerds out there, macrophylla means large (macro) leaves (phylla). Macrophilia means love of or attraction to (philia) something that is large (macro), often in reference to sexual fantasies of giants. OOPS!
