Little Quick Fire Hardy Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata)
Paniculata hydrangeas will grow and bloom in a wide variety of climates (Often hardy to Zone 3!).
If your weather is too cold to support the pink and blue hydrangeas or if your landscape doesn't have much shade, consider growing one of the many types of paniculatas. North or south, we can all enjoy them. Another desirable trait of all paniculatas is their tolerance for pruning. One can prune them at any time except when they begin forming bloom heads in the summer.
The name "paniculata" comes from the fact that the blooms are usually panicle-shaped (somewhat cone shaped) rather than ball-shaped. Many paniculata blooms develop a lovely pink shade as the blooms age, extending their beauty into the fall. Paniculata's often get very large. 8-10 feet tall and wide is not unusual.
Little Quick Fire
This is a wonderful dwarf form of the popular Quick Fire hydrangea. Like the original, it is early blooming, flowering about a month before other hydrangeas. White flowers transform to pink-red as summer progresses. Compact size fits easily into any landscape. Use it in a mixed border, or as a showy specimen or foundation plant. Its early bloom time will extend your garden's hydrangea season.
