Hydrangea paniculata 'Chantilly Lace'

Panicle Hydrangea

Plant Type:


Hydrangea paniculata 'Chantilly Lace' - Numerous large 8 to 10 inch lacy flowers open pure ivory white beginning in early summer. The cone-shaped inflorescences slowly become infused with pink and darken from rose to rosy red-purple. Persistent in fall they dry to brown and hang onto the shrub in winter. 'Chantilly Lace' is a smaller growing selection of Panicle Hydrangea or Pee Gee Hydrangea developed through the capable hands of Michael Dirr and Karen Bowman at the University of Georgia. It's a beautiful selection that has been hiding in the shadow of more touted cultivars... 'Chantilly Lace' is as worthy if not more so.
