Blooms emerge creamy-white and age to a vivid red for lots of summer color. It makes a great cut flower, fresh or dried, and can be used as a hedge, specimen, or incorporated into flower gardens and foundation plantings. A very hardy hydrangea for our climate.
Because Panicle Hydrangeas bloom on new growth, they typically flower normally even if the twigs have been killed back by frost. Plant in a sunny, well-drained spot; some early afternoon shade is beneficial. Prune in late winter or early spring.
Keep moist but not soggy. Fertilize with an all purpose tree and shrub fertilizer in spring and summer.
