Hydrangea is a shrub that is native to the Americas and certain parts of Asia.

The plant is commonly grown as an ornamental specimen because of its large, round flower heads—that is, if you don't mind the legend that foretells a life of spinsterhood for your daughters should you permit the plant to grow near your home.

The root of the plant, sometimes referred to as Seven Bark Herb, is traditionally used to prepare a strong tea, often in combination with apple cider.

hydrangea root

Hydrangea is a North American deciduous shrub grown as an ornamental garden plant because of its large, showy blooms. It also occurs naturally in moist woodlands and along stream banks throughout the east coast.

The root, dug in the fall, was used Native Americans to prepare teas and tonics. The Cherokee referred to hydrangea as seven barks because the bark of the plant’s twigs peel away to reveal a different color with each layer.

Although the use of hydrangea root was common in 19th century American herbalism, the plant itself is quite ancient. In fact, there is fossil evidence of that the herb existed more than 70 million years ago.
