The genus Hydrangea, famous for its ornamental representatives, faces several taxonomic and systematic difficulties at different levels. Unclear species boundaries are one of these difficulties, which require an in-depth study of molecular and morphological variability of Hydrangea taxa. This paper concentrates on gathering more specimens for studying the variability in H. sargentiana, which is recognized as a subspecies of H. aspera by some authors.
