Little Quick Fire® Hardy Hydrangea

Hydrangea paniculata 'SMHPLQF' PP #25,136; CPBR #5406

SKU
08995
This is a wonderful dwarf form of the popular Quick Fire™ hydrangea. Like the original, it is early blooming, flowering about a month before other hydrangeas. White flowers transform to pink-red as summer progresses. Compact size fits easily into any landscape. Use it in a mixed border, or as a showy specimen or foundation plant. Its early bloom time will extend your garden's hydrangea season.
