Hydrangeas, those queens of the shade garden, never fail to impress with their big blooms and luscious leaves. What could possibly improve on that? How about a smart tree-form of the award-winning Fire and Ice™ Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata 'Wims Red' PP26005)! Not only is the tree form easy to put in your landscape but it fits right in garden containers and patio beds and takes up much less room than the bush form. Grafted onto high-quality stock, this is instant topiary for your garden!
As if the striking tree form wasn't enough, you haven't truly enjoyed Panicle Hydrangeas until you've seen Fire and Ice in all its elevated glory. This beauty heralds early summer with an explosion of creamy white panicles of hundreds of small florets. Then in mid-summer, the flowers blush to pink, and in preparation for the fall show when the flowers turn deep red to match the season.
Mature flowers develop a marvelous pink as fall comes on. They'll stay showy until frost! Backed by the iconic Hydrangea foliage that is a quilted, toothy and textured lush green backdrop for those magnificent Panicle blossoms is the perfect combination. With some of the deepest red-pink blooms on the market, Fire Light Hydrangea isn't affected by soil pH.
This is such a great garden plant! You can use a pair to flank a doorway in large pots, or use one as a specimen in a planting bed. Try them with Azaleas and Coral bells for an unforgettable display! Woody Hydrangea tree form can even be grown in large outdoor containers. You'll amplify their sophisticated effect even further to decorate your balcony, patio, porch or deck.
Best of all, you'll enjoy a lavish display of blooms for months! Let this generous small tree grace your yard all summer and fall as a wonderful focal point. Snip a few for voluptuous indoor displays once they start to dry on the plant. They'll become beautiful dried flowers for indoor use, and can be sprayed silver or gold for the Holidays. Go ahead and give them as a cunning gift for the new homeowner.
Give it plenty of sun for the best flowering...at least four hours a day. In the warmest climates, consider placing them where they will receive afternoon shade. We also recommend that you find a sheltered planting spot that doesn't get buffeted by the worst of the wind. Give your Fire Light Hydrangea well-drained soils. Use a container, or create a raised planting bed if your soil stays soggy after a rainfall.
And while these lush small trees might look high-maintenance, nothing could be further from the truth. Fire and Ice is a beginning gardener's dream! The plant blooms on new wood, and it's a simple matter of a single shaping in spring to maintain their rounded canopy. Mulch over the root system to a depth of three inches. Pull the mulch back from the trunk several inches
