Panicle hydrangea

We think 'Little Quick Fire' is a gardener's dream come true. This very vigorous, compact shrub starts to bloom in early summer and keeps on going until hard frost. That's a lot of colour from one small shrub.The large blooms open creamy-white, then quickly turn a deep rosy-pink that is a bit unusual in hue and very eye-catching. This hydrangea works well in the shrub or mixed border but it  is also a great choice for a container.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Hydrangea 'Little Quick Fire' is an easy care shrub requiring organically rich, well drained soil in full sun to light shade. It becomes lanky in too much shade. It is very hardy, pest free and thrives in most garden situations. Pruning should be done in early spring because it blooms on new wood.
