Smooth Hydrangea - Arboresence Description

Smooth Hydrangea Arborescence

Smooth Hydrangea Arboresence shrubs get their name from the term "Ninebark," which originally comes from the unique exfoliating bark that peels back in small layers as the branches develop. It is a deciduous flowering shrub native to North America and provides year-round interest. It is a fast-growing shrub mainly found in deep purple, although the color might vary throughout the season. It arrives in the early summer with five-petalled flowers that grow in thick spirea-like clusters of white and later turn into reddish-pink capsules.

Early spring brings colorful foliage, which lasts until autumn, which brings along a yellow shade signifying fall color. As the clusters of white flowers mature, they gradually turn brown and remain so throughout the winter. This shrub is available in various forms, including Diablo, Little Devil, Coppertina, Darts Gold, Amber Jubilee, and Summer Wine.

You may find these shrubs in different colors, including gold, red, deep purple, yellow, orange, and burgundy foliage. Depending on the type, the shrub may grow to a mature height of 5 to 10 feet and also spread of 6 to 8 feet. It's also possible to get dwarf kinds that grow barely 3 to 4 feet tall. 

This deciduous shrub will thrive in any location with the full or moderate sun, but it needs total sun exposure for optimal blooming results. For people who live in chill cold climates, this shrub is a perennial favorite due to its hardiness and reliability. Its water consumption is modest but can withstand occasional floods and poor drainage if needed. Aside from that, these shrubs are drought tolerant and can grow in dry and moist environments. These attractive shrubs are adaptable and easy to care for, making them excellent for any garden.

Specimen plantings, foundation plantings, hedges, screens, and erosion control are some of the standard landscape designs for this shrub. To truly enjoy the arching branch pattern of this shrub, be sure to give it plenty of room and also prune it regularly.

In the mixed shrub border, you can plant these shrubs and other deciduous plants, such as lilacs and spirea, to create an eye-catching display. This plant draws an attraction toward animals and provides an optimal habitat for pollinators. It possesses a red fruit that attracts butterflies, birds, bees, and other insects. However, the most crucial reason to cultivate these plants is for wildlife and their appealing aesthetic throughout the year.

You may also use the Ninebark Shrub for decorations in floral arrangements.
