HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - Hydrangeas add a huge boost of color to your garden.

Some varieties are native to Alabama, and if they've been doing this well on their own for hundreds of years, surely they can do well in your garden.

George Bennett of Bennett Nurseries shows you a few types, including the Oak Leaf Hydrangea and the Tree-Like Hydrangea, or Hydrangea Arborescence.

You may also consider the native Azalea, which grows 10 to 12 feet tall.
