How to Make Hydrangea Paper

Our fifth episode covers Winterberry Holly, known botanically as Ilex verticillata. Is a plant that seems to come out of the woodwork in winter.

Episode 1 – Hydrangea paniculata, aka panicle hydrangea

Hydrangea paniculata features in the inaugural episode of Every Plant Deserves A Podcast for several reasons: one, it’s a plant that can be grown over nearly all of North America, from the chilliest northern locales to those in the steamy South, so it should be visibly familiar to people, whether or not they know it by name.
