Hydrangea paniculata 'Fire Light'

Fire Light Panicle Hydrangea: Patent TM

Categories: Shrubs

Fire Light™ blooms in midsummer, earlier than other paniculatas that delay their blooms until late summer or even early fall, but its flowers remain striking well into cool weather. The blooms arise on new wood, so it is best to prune in late fall or early spring.™ Fire Light™ is adaptable, working well with most soils, as long as it is well-drained and gets some sun. The enormous pink and white blooms are resolute, appearing reliably each year regardless of climate, pruning, or soil pH! Zones 3 to 8.
