Wild hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens) is a hardy and adaptable native shrub with tremendous horticultural and ecological value. Their abundant white to pink blooms, produced from June to July, are both eye-catching and attract a wide range of vitally important pollinators. Sam Hoadley, Manager of Horticultural Research, delves into the top-performing species and cultivars in Mt. Cuba’s Trial Garden and discusses how to successfully incorporate and care for these versatile shrubs in your home landscape. A tour of the garden’s hydrangeas completes the class.
This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Wednesday, June 29 (Rain Date: Wednesday, July 6)
