Product Description

Botanical Name: Hydrangea arborescens

Plant Family: Hydrangeaceae

Botanical Description:
Hydrangea arborescens, commonly known as smooth hydrangea or wild hydrangea, is a deciduous shrub native to eastern North America. It belongs to the Hydrangeaceae family and is characterized by its large, rounded clusters of white or pale pink flowers, which bloom from late spring to early summer. The flowers consist of small, fertile flowers surrounded by larger, sterile flowers, giving the inflorescences a showy and ornamental appearance. The leaves of Hydrangea arborescens are opposite, simple, and ovate with serrated margins, and they are medium to dark green in color. The stems are woody and erect, reaching heights of 1 to 1.5 meters. Hydrangea arborescens is cultivated for its attractive blooms and is commonly found in gardens, landscapes, and woodland areas.

Hydrangea arborescens has a rich history of traditional use among Native American tribes, who utilized various parts of the plant for medicinal purposes. The plant's common name, "hydrangea," is derived from the Greek words "hydro" (water) and "angeion" (vessel), alluding to its historical use as a diuretic and urinary tonic.
