Wild Hydrangea / Hydrangea arborescens

If you ever visit the Great Smoky Mountains in late June, keep your eyes out for our beautiful native Hydrangea!  More formally known as Smooth Hydrangea; cultivated verities of this plant have been widely used in landscaping for many years - yet its nearly impossible find a true species for sale! This is a shame because Smooth Hydrangeas natural form is stunning, and with fertile flowers, can be very attractive to pollinators.
