Features

Fire Light® is the standard to measure all panicle hydrangeas! We developed this easy-to-grow, reliable panicle hydrangea in Michigan, selecting it for its huge, full flower heads and sturdy, strong stems. 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. 

Top three reasons to grow Fire Light® hydrangea:

- Exceptionally hardy, growing and flowering well even in chilly zone 3

- large flowers age to red early in the summer for a colorful display

- low-maintenance and easy to grow - the perfect plant for "black thumbs."

Maintenance Notes: 

Panicle hydrangeas are best pruned in late fall or early spring. Cut the branches back by about one-third their total length. This plant tolerates a wide range of conditions, but does not grow well in soggy soil. Plant in full sun in zones 3-7; afternoon shade is preferable in warmer areas. A good 2-3" (5-7.6 cm) layer of shredded bark mulch over the roots is very beneficial.

If desired, fertilize in early spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.

Fire Light hydrangea is a true show off in the summer garden!
