Panicle hydrangeas: Different varieties with strong growth and large flower panicles

Creamy white flowers predominate

Most panicle hydrangeas bloom creamy white, although the color often changes to pink as they fade. In addition, many varieties flower very late, with the dwarf hydrangea “Dharuma” being an exception. “Dharuma” shows its creamy white flowers from May to June. Due to the early flowering, this variety - an exception to the rule! - the flowers already laid out the previous year Therefore, you must not prune “Dharuma” back in spring, if necessary the shoots should be slightly shortened.

Tips & Tricks

Panicle hydrangeas can be raised very well as a tree or as a high stem. In their homeland, the bushes can reach heights of up to seven meters, but can be cultivated as a small bush through regular pruning.
