Quick Fire® Hardy Hydrangea Hydrangea paniculata
- Part Sun to Sun
- Mature Size
- 72 - 96 Inches
Blooms up to a month earlier than other hydrangeas! White flowers change to pink. Blooms every year. Easy to grow.
A very hardy flowering shrub good for full sun locations. Perfect for a mixed container. Good for groupings and in mass plantings, shrub and perennial borders, as a specimen, a screen or a hedge. This is an especially good addition to hydrangea gardens
Prefers good, loamy soil. Most adaptable of all hydrangeas to different soil types. Most urban tolerant and very difficult to kill. Prune in late winter/early spring. Medium moisture, not as water dependent as Hydrangea. Will tolerate drought. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rates of application.
The first to bloom! Quick Fire blooms about a month before other Hydrangea paniculata (hardy hydrangea) varieties. Extend the hydrangea season in your garden with a planting of Quick Fire Hydrangea. Flowers open white then turn pink, and will be an extremely dark rosy-pink in the fall. The flowers on Quick Fire are not affected by soil pH. They are produced on 'new wood' and will bloom after even the harshest winters. Beautiful for use as a cut (fresh or dried) flower. Plant with 'Little Lamb' and 'Limelight' for months of hydrangea flowers.
