Ornamental value and landscape use

We have had hydrangea fever for some time now! What is not to love about these vigorous growing, heavy blooming garden plants? Quick fire hydrangea is a fabulous selection from the panicle hydrangea family. It is one of the earliest blooming panicle hydrangeas—beginning in the midsummer and continuing throughout the fall. Growing on sturdy stems, the robust blooms are strong and reach about six inches. When the blooms open up, they are white. They eventually fade to a pale pink and then onto a darker pink in the fall. During the winter, they transition to a tan color.

Attractive to pollinators, they are not impacted by soil pH and can bloom on new wood that won’t be affected by freezing temperatures. Their coarse-textured foliage is self-complementary. We recommend pruning quick fire hydrangeas back by one third their total size during the late winter or early spring months.

Quick fire hydrangeas are ideal as freshly cut flowers. They may be used as accent plants, backdrops to other plants, or planted in bulk for a tall hedge.
