We could never improve Grandma, but we have improved her hydrangeas!

Thriving in both sun and shade, providing large colorful blooms at the height of the growing season and available in varying sizes, makes Hydrangeas one of the most versatile shrubs.

Hydrangea arborescens or Smooth Hydrangea

Smooth hydrangeas are also known as wild hydrangeas and are a native species. They can tolerate hotter climates, but prefers both full sun and partial shade throughout the day.


Hydrangea macrophylla or Bigleaf Hydrangea

Bigleaf Hydrangeas are the most common type of hydrangea. There are varieties available with mophead or lace-cap blooms. The bloom colors depends on the pH of the soil.

Hydrangea paniculata or Hardy Hydrangea

Hardy Hydrangeas are known for their cone-shaped panicle blooms. These tend to be the most cold hardy and sun tolerant of all hydrangeas. Their flowers can last a long time which makes them great for drying.


Hydrangea quercifolia or Oakleaf Hydrangea

Oakleaf Hydrangeas get their name from their oakleaf-shaped foliage. These leaves also turn a deep shade of red as the temperatures cool. This species is also native and showcases panicle blooms. They can tolerate a wide range of climates.


Hydrangea serrata or Mountain Hydrangea

Mountain Hydrangeas have hardier buds and thrive in harsh climates. They also bear lace-cap flowers. Flower color depends on the pH of the soil.
