why do the flowers on my hydrangea not open fully? the centres stay as tight buds
It sounds as if you have a Lacecap Hydrangea ... they look quite different to the mophead types. Much more delicate and elegant ...

The middles don't open fully, it's something to do with the fertilisation. The outside flowers are different to the inside ones, can't remember off hand exactly which is which but I saw a programme on tv about the reproduction of the lace cap.
thankyou, yes i can see that mine is a lacecap now,
