Hydrangea - Fire Light Tidbit®

Hydrangea paniculata x 'SMNHPK'

Fire Light Tidbit® is a dwarf hydrangea with a low, mounded habit and lots of color action. As a late season bloomer, flowers emerge bright lime green, turning white, followed by hues of dragon fruit pink. The lovely progression of color is unaffected by soil pH level. Panicle hydrangeas are the most sun tolerant of the hydrangeas. Strong, sturdy stems - plant this mophead in the front of your border, or as a specimen, in containers or in mass plantings. Enjoy cut blooms in your home. An added attraction is the orange-red autumn foliage.

Our plants come with extra large and fibrous root systems, ready to plant and flourish!

Panicle hydrangeas are best pruned in late fall or early spring. Cut the branches back by about one-third their total length. This plant tolerates a wide range of conditions, but does not grow well in soggy soil. Plant in full sun in zones 3-7; afternoon shade is preferable in warmer areas. A good 2-3" (5-7.6 cm) layer of shredded bark mulch over the roots is very beneficial.

If desired, fertilize in early spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.
