Hydrangea and Ferns

The best plants for an allergy-friendly garden are those that don't produce airborne pollen. Plants such as hydrangea that have sticky pollen or plants with no pollen at all, such as ferns, are the best bets. Hydrangea is a deciduous shrub or vine that comes in hundreds of varieties. The big leaves are three to six inches long and its clusters of long-lasting flowers can be white, pink, red or blue. They require full sun to partial shade and are easy to grow in rich, porous soil.
