Smooth Hydrangeas (Hydrangea arborescens), are also called wild hydrangeas. These bushes can tolerate hot climates and also colder temperatures as they are hardy from zones 4 to 7. Smooth Hydrangeas bloom profusely from summer to early fall and can be grown in full sun or dappled shade. They grow 3’ to 6’ tall and wide are sometimes planted as hedges because of their size. The leaves of arborescens are generally heart shaped, thin, and floppier than the mopheads (macrophylla). They have a matte surface and a courser texture than the smooth leaf of the mophead. The leaf stems (petiole) are long and hold the leaf away from the main stem. A magnificent flowering shrub.
