A fast grower in full sun or part shade. This panicle hydrangea has 8" 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, well-drained soils.
