Hydrangea paniculata 'Unique'

Panicle Hydrangea

Plant Type:


Hydrangea paniculata 'Unique' -  Especially large and gorgeous symmetrical creamy white cones end in a point - no puffy cotton-candied gumdroppy thing here! Panicles grow to at least 8 inches in length and very possibly longer in a mix of sterile and fertile parts. Foliage is glossier than the usually matte-finished green of most cultivars. Flower heads eventually turn brown and tend to remain on the shrub through the winter providing modest interest during the coldest part of the year. This is a larger grower, 8 to 10 feet tall; but if you have the space this is most worthy. But you may keep it smaller if you like as Hydrangea paniculata in all of its renditions flowers on new wood and can be pruned down to lower leaf buds in late winter. Part to full sun in fertile soil that holds onto some moisture between rains. The species hails from China; 'Unique' is of garden origin. Established, potted cutting grown shrub.

Site in full to half sun planted in any good garden soil that drains. All we sell are established shrubs from cuttings. All are a manageable size to easily get them settled into your landscape.
