But the beauty and unusualness of those flowers, about which this story is in no way inferior, and often even emphasizes the taste and non-standardity of both the donor and the person they are meant for.
This flower with large inflorescences is named after the princess Hortense, who was the sister of one of the princes of the Holy Roman Empire and was known as graceful and sincere. Later European botanists named him Hydrangea, which, in Latin and Greek, means "a jug of water". Probably, because of the similarity of the seed boxes to the vessels for water or, according to another version, for the hygrophilous nature of the plant.
Shrubs or small hydrangeas in the natural environment are common in South and North America, some in Russia and the Far East, in the South, and the largest number of species in East Asia, especially in China and Japan. By the way, the Japanese call the hydrisis "audzisai" and connect its appearance on the ground with the day the Buddha was born, and then the tender petals of a beautiful flower showered from the sky and the "amacha" nectar, tender and sweet, poured from the sky. If you literally translate the hieroglyphs in the title, it means "purple flower, like the sun". In the Land of the Rising Sun this flower is very loved and revered. On the day of celebrating the birth of Buddha in temples in the middle of small pools set the statues of the Buddha-baby, and the Japanese, coming to the feast, with reverence pour sweet amach tea on the head of the statue. This tea is a ritual drink and is brewed from the leaves of the auszisai. According to the beliefs, he not only heals snakes and insects from bites, but also protects from evil spirits, because he has great magical power. In addition, the hydrangea leaves contain a large amount of sugar, and before its appearance in Japan, the leaves were prepared with a thick syrup that was used as saccharin in Europe.
Flowers hydrangeas in most species are white, but often also found red, pink, blue and purple. Oddly enough, the color of the bud depends on the level of acidity of the soil and on the content of aluminum in it, which gives a blue tint to the flowers.
