Uses Notes: 

Great landscape plant adds a dash of bright color. Good in groupings or masses, in a perennial or shrub borders, as a specimen, screen or hedge. Use in mixed containers, containers, and as a cut flower.

Maintenance Notes: 

Best in well-drained soil that has been amended with peat moss, leaf mold or compost. Flourishes by the ocean. Pruning is usually not needed, but may be pruned immediately after flowering. Prefers moist soils. May need winter protection in northern areas. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for the recommended rate of application. Flower color is affected by pH. For blue flowers, the soil must be more acidic and for pink flowers the soil must be more alkaline. Apply aluminum sulfate to the soil to encourage blue flowers.

Small plant, big flowers.

This petite shrub has intense fuschia-red flowers that are long-lasting; they will fade to an attractive green with age. Like other Cityline hydrangeas, Paris is a dwarf plant that does not need pruning. It also has excellent mildew resistance so the dark green, glossy foliage always looks fresh and clean.

  • The first two years after planting this hydrangea were disappointing, just one bloom each year, but we'd also had extremely harsh winters and other H's in my yard were equally as disappointing. Now into year 3, this little guy is blooming beautifully!!! I'm extremely pleased and will be replacing my lackluster H's with more of these little beauties. The compact size lets them fit easily into any garden. Give them time, they're worth the wait.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • These plants are sold hardy in zone five but the old wood canes die off in winter and because they flower on old wood I haven't seen a bloom in five years.
