The American Hydrangea Society was formed in 1994 for people who love hydrangeas and want to "study and learn about the genus Hydrangea, its species and cultivars, as well as its culture, habits, hardiness, and performance." A fascination with the hydrangea in all of its forms is the common thread that unites the members of the AHS.

President's Letter - Fall 2022
