Firelight Tidbit Panicle Hydrangea

$44.99

A new full sun hydrangea from Proven Winners, Firelight Tidbit is amazing. Panicle hydrangeas – also known as peegee hydrangeas, hardy hydrangeas, and Limelight hydrangeas, are the easiest to grow, most adaptable of all hydrangeas. At only 2-3' tall and wide, big, blooms of white mophead flowers appear in early-mid summer. 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.

Care

Panicle hydrangeas are the most sun-tolerant of all hydrangeas, and in colder climates They like at least four hours of bright light each day but they love good hot sun. They have strong stems to hold their large blooms.  Overall, panicle hydrangeas aren’t finicky about soil, but good drainage is a must. Like any newly planted shrub or tree, panicle hydrangeas need regular water during their first year or two. Once they are established, they can survive dry conditions, however, too much hot, dry weather can compromise blooming, so regular watering is recommended for the most and best looking flowers.

Growth Habit

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. Thick, sturdy stems help to create a neat, mounded plant that's fantastic in landscapes, flower gardens, even in containers!

 Toxicity

The leaves, buds, flowers, and bark all contain the toxin, so if your dog munches any part of your hydrangeas, he could get sick. Hydrangeas also are toxic to other pets like cats and horses. Hydrangeas are not deer or rabbit resistant.
