Creamy-White Summer Flowers for Your Garden Parties!

Humans are a fickle bunch. We are always fighting the GIAGOTOS struggle. (That is, the "Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side".) When the winter is at its coldest, we're wishing for the warmth of summer. When the dog days of summer are on us we are wishing for winter sweaters and fireplaces. Go figure.

Maybe we at Nature Hills have something that can scratch at least one of those itches. Snowhill Smooth Hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens 'Grandiflora') - sometimes called "Hills-of-Snow Hydrangea" - is a lovely old plant that brings a shot of winter crispness to warm summer days.

One of the classic garden plants of the south, this native shrub has graced garden parties, cotillions and firefly-lit picnics for generations. Let it do the same for your yard.

Snowhill will covers itself with large creamy-white snowball blooms all summer long. The blooms are perfect cut flowers for centerpieces and are some of the best flowers to dry and save for winter decorating. (Just look up 'dried hydrangea decorations for Christmas trees' to see what a hot trend it is right now).

These shrubs are easy to care for. All they need is a quick prune to 6" tall in late winter/early spring for them to flower at their best. (They flower on new wood so give them a fresh start every spring.) They prefer shade in the hottest parts of the day, so plant accordingly.

Don't always want something that is out of reach. Sometimes you just need to enjoy what is right in front of you. Make that task easier. Put Snowhill Smooth Hydrangea in your garden today!

  • Easy care native shrub
  • Great flowers, fresh or dried
  • Deep green foliage all season
