Question: Are hydrangeas considered monocots or dicots?
Quick Answer: Hydrangeas are classified as dicots.
Why Are Hydrangeas Considered Dicots?
Hydrangeas seeds have two embryonic leaves. When hydrangeas sprout from the soil, these leaves become clearly visible, defining them as dicots. When used in biology, di means two, and ‘cot’ is short for cotyledons, an embryo seed leaf.
