The Candelabra® Hydrangea is a new variety of panicle hydrangea that grows to a compact 5 feet tall and has strong stems with flower heads that don’t flop. The large, conical clusters of flowers begin creamy white and then turn red from the bottom up, making an ever-changing color display. Blooms are attractive for months, and this easy-care bush is perfect in all your shrub beds, brightening summer and fall without any special care, and doing it reliably even in the coldest parts of the country.
The Candelabra® Hydrangea is reliably hardy in zone 3, where it blooms profusely. It grows well in full sun or partial shade, in any well-drained soil, and it is normally free of pests and diseases. A simple pruning in spring is all it takes to keep it vigorous and healthy, and you can control the size of the plant and the flower heads by varying the way you prune it.
