5 Must Have Hydrangea Paniculatas

Also known as peegee or panicle hydrangeas and hardy to zone 3, these plants thrive in full sun or part shade. The white blooms, which cover the plants all summer, fade to shades of pink and rosy red in early to mid-fall.

Hydrangea 'Little Quick Fire'

Like Quick Fire, it is early blooming, flowering about a month before other hydrangeas. White flowers transform to pink-red as summer progresses.

Height: 3 - 5 Feet

Width: 3-5 Feet




Hydrangea 'Firelight Tidbit'

Is the tiniest, tidiest panicle hydrangea yet: it reaches just 2-3 feet tall and wide, yet it packs in tons of easy-care beauty into its small size. Big, lush panicles of white mophead flowers appear in early-mid summer, nearly obscuring the textured green foliage. As the summer progresses, they begin to develop bright pink and red tones, which keep it colorful right on up to the first frost, especially combined with its colorful autumn foliage, an unusual trait in panicle hydrangeas.

Height: 2-3 Feet

Width: 2-3 Feet



Hydrangea 'Puffer Fish'

Think of Puffer Fish panicle hydrangea (H. paniculata) as a larger, more puffed up Bobo®, with fluffy white blooms that engulf the entire plant, nearly obscuring the foliage. The flowers open and mature to a pure white. As the blooms age, they turn lime green and, for a bit of surprise, a fresh sprig of white flowers emerges from the tip of the panicle.

Height: 3-5 Feet

Width: 3-5 Feet



Hydrangea 'Bobo'

Reaching to just three feet tall, it will be engulfed by enormous creamy white flowers in summer, providing a nonstop show until frost. Blossoms are held upright on strong stems and continue to grow and lengthen as they bloom. In fall, flowers may turn a pinkish hue.

Height: 3 Feet

Width: 3-4 Feet



Hydrangea 'Limelight Prime'

The next generation of 'Limelight' is here! Introducing Limelight Prime® hydrangea.

Blooms much earlier, creating a longer display. Bolder, brighter color. As the green blooms age, they develop pink and red tones that are far more vivid and showy than conventional panicle hydrangeas.

Height: 4 - 6 Feet

Width: 4-5 Feet
