Known to draw in butterflies and other pollinators, this woody, perennial shrub is a helpmate to neighboring plants. The large, florist-quality blooms are stunning in cut flower arrangements and dry beautifully for extended enjoyment. Blooms can be expected sometime in June and continue their display through August. Wild hydrangea flowers start with a greenish hue and then mature to beautiful white rounded bunches of tiny, four-petal blooms that sit on top of tall, silvery brown cane stems. Underneath the white mounds lie medium-sized dark green leaves, oval-shaped with serrated edged. Mature shrubs will reach about 3 to 6 feet tall and around 4 to 6 feet wide.
Wild Hydrangea is a Hardy, Adaptable Shrub Grown for its Large, Cloud Like Flower Clusters
In early spring, stems should be pruned back to just above ground level to make room for the new growth. Any suckers that protrude out can be pruned off to keep the original plant shape, or they can be allowed to grow to fill in areas as desired. Wild hydrangea flourishes in gardens with soil that is slightly acidic and is moist with good drainage. A little mulch in the spring or after planting will help keep the moisture levels pleasant; while also assisting with soil temperature and weed control.
During dry spells, the wild hydrangea will benefit from little extra water, but the overall care of the plant is minimal, making it an attractive choice.
