Smooth hydrangea are the hardiest of the hydrangea species. Large leaves emerge bright green followed by giant white flower heads in mid-summer. Blooms age to a creamy lime color in late season and are great for drying for indoor arrangements. Does best in partly shaded areas with some protection. Full sun or exposed to wind, plant can suffer from dieback, but usually recovers from the base.
