Hydrangea paniculata 'Phantom'

Phantom Hydrangea

Categories: Shrubs

Phantom' has huge white flower heads, the largest we have seen so far on this species. The flower bracts are pale green in early summer, turning white from July to August, finally darkening to pink before falling in September. These bracts stand out well against the pretty green leaves. The branches are sturdy enough to hold up the blooms in most cases.
