Quick Overview:

Panicle hydrangeas are good for full to part sun borders or as accent plants.  Fire and Ice grows from 3′ to 6′ tall and 3′ to 4′ wide.  It’s loose cone shaped flower clusters bloom a creamy white in early summer, aging to pink and finally to deep red by fall giving it a long season of interest in the garden.


Best grown in organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Can be trained as a small single trunk tree, but is best grown as a multi-stemmed shrub. This is one of the most winter hardy of the hydrangeas. It thrives in urban conditions. Bloom occurs on current season’s growth, so prune as needed in late winter to early spring.   (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
