Description

Wild hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens) is a hardy and adaptable native shrub with tremendous horticultural and ecological value. Their abundant white to pink blooms, produced from June to July, are both eye-catching and attract a wide range of vitally important pollinators. Sam Hoadley, Manager of Horticultural Research, delves into the top performing species and cultivars in Mt. Cuba Center’s Trial Garden and discusses how to successfully incorporate and care for these versatile shrubs in your home landscape. A tour of the hydrangeas completes the class.
