America's favorite for old-fashioned elegance!
Growing to 4 feet high and wide, it is a splendid landscape plant that never gets out of bounds and complements every other color in the garden beautifully. It thrives in shade, but also tolerates heat and humidity. Very easy to grow once established, it is a lovely source of fresh and dried arrangements as well as a useful border, hedge, foundation, or accent planting.
H. arborescens is a native species, far more cold-hardy than most other Hydrangea species. Recently another cultivar has been added to the family: spectacular pink-flowered Invincibelle Spirit. Try them together for a breathtaking pink-and-white hedge, border, or accent planting! Zones 4-9.
