Hydrangea, commonly named the hortensia, is a genus of more than 70 species of flowering plants native to Asia and the Americas. By far the greatest species diversity is in eastern Asia, notably China, Korea, and Japan. They can be either deciduous or evergreen, though the widely cultivated temperate species are all deciduous. The flowers of many hydrangea act as natural pH indicators, sporting blue flowers when the soil is acidic and pink ones when the soil is alkaline.

Hydrangea is derived from Greek and means ‘water vessel’ (from ὕδωρ húdōr "water" + ἄγγος ángos or ἀγγεῖον angeîon "vessel, in reference to the shape of its seed capsules. The earlier name, Hortensia, is a Latinised version of the French given name Hortense, honoring French astronomer and mathematician Nicole-Reine Hortense Lepaute.

Janet, hydrangeas is the name of this flower in English. In Greece we follow the French name "Hortense" which is spelled ΟΡΤΑΝΣΙΑ or Ortansia.

Interesting information, Marina. I had noticed that on Jigidi some people refer to them as hydrangeas as we do here in UK and some people call them hortense, depending which country they are from. Learning things all the time!
