Is this a Hydrangea?

melaroma(6)October 13, 2009

I'm from Puerto Rico where we have Cruz de Malta which looks like Hydrangeas.

They are tropical and come in regular size (4-6ft) and miniature (2-3ft)

Does anyone know if these would be considered Hydrangeas? I now live in Utah and always think of Cruz de Malta when I see my Hydrangeas, I had to ask!

they come in red, orange, yellow or white.

No, not related but the blooms do give a similar effect don't they. Ixora (Cruz de Malta) belongs to the family Rubiaceae, hydrangea to the family Hydrangeaceae.

How pretty! I only wish hydrangea came in that shade red or orange, I'd be growing those for sure.
