Hydrangea - Phantom
Huge Heads Don't Flop Over
The Hydrangea Phantom, Hydrangea paniculata 'Phantom', produces massive, dense conical flower clusters at the ends of the branches, which are huge, up to 15" in diameter.
The large flower heads on this Peegee type hydrangea start out ivory and progress to white with pinkish tips.
It tends to be a bit leggy and with a two foot clearance from the ground, Phantom hydrangea will grow to be about 10 feet tall at maturity with a spread of 10 feet. It is suitable for planting under power lines.
This hydrangea shrub performs well in both full sun and full shade. It shouldn't be allowed to dry out so the soil needs to be kept moist.
It is highly tolerant of urban pollution so Phantom will even thrive in inner city environments.
It is best to apply thick mulch around the plant to protect it in exposed locations or colder zones.
Producing the fullest flower heads of any hydrangea, Phantom has stems that are much sturdier and thicker than other past hydrangea and does not "flop" under the heavy weight of its oversized blooms. It is hardy to zone 3.
This multi-stemmed deciduous shrub will certainly standout in any landscape either as an accent plant or when planted in mass!
