Hydrangea paniculata 'Phantom'

SKU
40399
A remarkable panicle hydrangea with the largest flower heads of any of its species - up to 15 inches long. The conical color-changing blooms unfold midsummer as a creamy white, then graduate to a blushing, soft pink as the summer progresses. A heavy bloomer with sturdy-stemmed flowers that do not flop. Deciduous.
