Hydrangea arborescens, Smooth HydrangeaSKU: n/a.
A cherished Missouri native shrub, Hydrangea arborescens, a Smooth Hydrangea, features clouds of large, 2-6″ creamy white, dome-shaped flowers. Smooth Hydrangea flowers heavily May through July, with a scattering of additional flowers appearing into September. Hydrangea arborescens creates an ethereal site in the shade garden. Its large flowers are held on sturdy, non-drooping stems. Smooth Hydrangea works well massed as a hedge or in the garden, or as a specimen. It can be naturalized in woodland, native, or rain gardens. Smooth Hydrangea makes a luscious background for perennial gardens. Its flowers are fantastic fresh or dried.
Tolerant of many different soils and moisture conditions, Smooth Hydrangeas are easy to grow. They prefer shade to part shade, and even grow in deep shade. Hydrangea arborescens blooms on new wood. To revitalize shrubs and to encourage vigorous stem growth, prune back close to the ground in late winter.
A featured plant of the Missouri Prairie Foundation Grow Native Pollinator Buffet program, a collection of plants that have been identified as being important to pollinators.
