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)

Size: 3' 0"–5' 0" high x 3' 0"–5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 3.
