Nine Bark Hydrangea
Nine Bark Hydrangea is native to North America. The very similar “Annabelle” Hydrangea is a cultivar of this native hydrangea. It grows in the Eastern United States from New York to Florida and can be found west as far as the eastern part of Oklahoma. It is very cold tolerant for a hydrangea, but it prefers specific growing conditions. It likes consistent, well-drained, moist soils. It can be found under wooded canopies near rivers and streams. Some people call it the Smooth Hydrangea or Wild Hydrangea. These shrubs are also called Snow Hill Hydrangea and also Hydrangea Arborescens by the scientific name. They are wonderful because they can be trimmed and shaped to the desired height and size for all gardens and lawns. They do best when trimmed after they have bloomed for the season.
Nine Bark Hydrangea need no special attention or maintaining.
They grow to become very strong and hardy as their trunks and limbs are a woody texture. This shrub gives beautiful large green leaves, and the blooms are amazing as they appear in large and small balls that resemble snowballs as they grow. These shrubs add a great amount of curb appeal to a home and look outstanding where ever they are planted.Native to the eastern United States, the seven bark hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens) is a small- to a medium-sized shrub that grows up to ten feet tall.
Seven bark hydrangea grows mostly in the understory of hardwood forests and also along the edges of woodland roads and streams.The origin of its common name "seven bark" comes from the appearance of the bark on its stem. The bark tends to peel off in successive layers, revealing different colors.Medicinally, the roots were used to treat kidney and bladder problems, and tea from the inner bark treated vomiting in children. The outer bark, made into a poultice, soothed swollen muscles and burns; chewing the bark managed stomach troubles and high blood pressure.
Nine Bark Hydrangea grows to become very thick and dense and works great to create and provide a natural border for lawns.
