Hydrangea arborescens ‘Haas' Halo’
at Digging Dog

Hydrangea

The name Hydrangea, means “water vessel,” given for its cup-shaped seed vessels. A genus of diverse forms, Hydrangeas are commonly found throughout Asia, from the Himalayas to Taiwan and Japan, with the exception of two species, Hydrangea arborescens and Hydrangea quercifolia, which are native to North America.

Easily grown, this shrub’s lush deciduous leaves are best suited to loose, moist soil in the shade of tall trees or on the north side of the house. If, like us, you’ve tired of the commoner sort, these delicacies will be a welcome surprise.

Hydrangea arborescens ‘Haas' Halo’ full sun  partial shade  drought tolerant

Discovered in 2008 and newly introduced, this spectacular native cultivar sprung up as a chance seedling in a Springfield, PA. garden. ‘Haas’ Halo’ premiers massive 15 in. wide lacecaps with up to 50 good-sized sterile florets surmounting an upright deciduous foundation, whose strong sturdy stems easily support the snowy white extravaganza. Large round pointed leaves don bluish overtones and make a composed leathery green foil for the magnificent flowers that sustain a lovely dried presence some 6 months after they’ve stopped blooming. Though its parentage is uncertain, its stalwart disposition is known to tackle heat, humidity and drought, plus always look fabulous wherever it’s planted. (PPAF)

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
