A fast grower that can easily take over much space, in full sun or part shade. This Panicle hydrangea has 8-inch long flower heads that taper roundly towards the tip. Florets open creamy white, turning papery and pinkish with age. Very cold hardy and vigorous, this shrub can form a multi-stemmed hedge, lending screening and shelter to low-growing shade perennials. Easy to grow, in moist but well-drained soils.
