Have you ever seen such a large hydrangea flower head?

Have you ever seen such a large hydrangea flower head?  I have seen lots of hydrangea blossoms, especially since starting my own gardening business (Gardens4u), but never have I seen one so large.  My hand is included in the first picture to lend a sense of scale; the bloom measured 14 x 9 inches…

This plant is a peegee hydrangea which is the only variety of hydrangea that can be grown in tree form.  The cone-shaped blooms are called panicles; the name peegee means panicle shaped hydrangea. The blooms are white tinged with pale pink; gorgeous!
