Hydrangea arborescens

Arborescens hydrangeas, originating in the eastern United States, are plants belonging to the Hydrangeaceae family. They were the first varieties of hydrangeas introduced in Europe starting from 1736, more precisely in the United Kingdom. These are small-medium sized species, with deciduous leaves that can reach a maximum height of 3 meters even if the average level varies usually from 1 to 1.5 m. Flowering occurs from mid-June until the beginning of the cold season. The leaves appear muffled with serrated edges.
Thanks to their particular appearance and posture, they are used as ornamental plants: the Maite variety is the most known and cultivated thanks to its high resistance to cold and the ability to grow without particular care or attention. Other known and particularly beautiful species, very cultivated in our gardens, are: H. Grandiflora, H. Annabelle and H. Hill of snow


Height: reaches about 150 centimeters
Leaf: bright green, oval, rough on the upper side, serrated edge
Flowering: abundant, from June to September
Inflorescence: pure white, convex, medium-small size
Hydrangea is criticized because the slender stems tend to fall towards the ground under the weight of the inflorescences, so abundant as to form white clouds that, often, even hide the leaves. This can happen and is evident in small plants. However in the large and well developed bushes the central inflorescences remain erect, while the external ones tend to widen horizontally rather than to fall. The result is a well-rounded, luminous and unusual bush with a complete flowering that slopes down from the center of the plant to the ground: a quality more than a defect! In addition to the multitude of flowers and the long flowering period it has the advantage of being very resistant, both to frost and to the drier periods. A beautiful plant.


Height: reaches around 120 centimeters
Leaf: oval, thin and smooth, serrated edge
Flowering: from the end of June to the first cold
Inflorescence: white, globose, large size, turns
to the Carthusian green at the end of the summer.
Probably the most beautiful cultivar of arborescens known to date. Spectacular for the enormous flowers kept however well erected by strong branches, sometimes reddish. The size of the inflorescences can be easily controlled with adequate pruning (the rule is simple: less pruning, smaller flowers). Vigorous shrub (the distance between the nodes can reach 20 cm or more), with a loose bearing, needs adequate space to show itself in all its splendor.

Hill of Snow

Height: does not exceed 120 centimeters
Leaf: dark green, serrated edge
Flowering: mid-June to mid-July
Inflorescence: ivory white, convex
Hydrangea of ​​unknown origin, with slender stems and a particular flower. Its shape is in fact definable as 'lacecap', but the sterile flowers are in a smaller number than usual, sometimes even absent, which distinguishes it from the other arborescens.
