Blooms on New Wood
Captivating flowers with a whimsical name! Summer-long clouds of white nearly obscure the foliage. The flowers inflate to a notable 6-8” across. A wispy sprig of white florets emerges from the tip of each panicle as blossoms mature to lime green. Hydrangea Puffer Fish® blooms on new wood, so there is no worry about winter cold. Strong stems keep the beefy flowers upright with a compact habit. A deciduous shrub, this Hardy Hydrangea will promote reliable flowering and hardier plants with bountiful summer displays. Lovely as a shorter hedge, accent planting, or an enticing entrance planting.

Hydrangea General Information

Paniculata Hydrangeas are cold hardy, more sun tolerant and superb in the border for summer and autumn display. Blooming on new wood, the flowering is not affected by cold snaps and will bloom consistently every year. Provides winter interest too if flowers are left on. Great for indoor decorating as their flowers are easily dried. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Hydrangea Plant Care

Paniculata Hydrangeas can be pruned in the fall, winter, or spring. Do not prune just before they bloom, and it is not necessary to prune them every year. For a strong structure, it is a good idea to trim out any crossing branches once in awhile. Shaping can be done as needed.
