Smooth Hydrangea - Hydrangea arborescens
One of the best shade tolerant plants. Typically we find this plant in open woods, shaded wetlands, and along woodland streams. White corymbs bloom in June and July. Can form colonies, but not aggressively. We use the plant to indicate when to water, for it is one of the first to wilt. The flowers make great dried arrangements.
