Panicle Hydrangea

'Fire Light Tidbit' is a dwarf hydrangea, a bit like 'Bobo' but with a lower, mounded habit and a lot more colour. Big, lush panicles emerge a bright lime green and transition to white, mophead flowers  in early-mid summer, nearly obscuring the textured green foliage. As the summer progresses, they begin to develop bright pink and red tones, which keep it colorful right on up to the first frost It is a perfect little front of the border plant  that, as a bonus, will often give you a nice display of orange-red autumn foliage.
