Snow hill hydrangea, Hydrangea arborescens, is a deciduous shrub.
This shrub just keeps them coming. The flowers are big and showy, resembling big snowballs, hence earning its name. Despite the enormous size of the blooms, the branches are sturdy, and the flowers never droop like so many giant flowering plants tend to do. They look lovely in a row, creating an informal border in the yard or as one specimen plant to light up a corner. The night garden glows with this beauty as a centerpiece. Since they bloom well in partial sun/shade, they can look stunning on the side of the house that is shaded by the neighboring homes or large trees. Many growers never fertilize and get remarkable, healthy plants. If you choose to institute a fertilization program, select a balanced slow-release fertilizer and use it in early spring and again in the fall. Provide adequate moisture when needed, and hard pruning every spring and the natural vigor of the shrub will do the rest. Snow hill hydrangeas are very easy to preserve by drying if a few basic steps followed. Make sure the bloom itself is mature. Wait several weeks, at least, before cutting for drying. Strip the leaves from the stems before cutting them. Cut the stems around 12" long and put them in a vase tall enough that the stems are at least halfway submerged. Put the vase out of direct sunlight and let the water evaporate over time. By the time the water is gone, the flowers should be thoroughly dried and ready to use and enjoy.
