Planting Pros Recommend:

Big blooms on a tiny shrub! The Fire Light Tidbit® Panicle Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata 'SMNHPK') is the baby sister to the Fire Light Hydrangea! Staying a neat and tidy 2-3 feet in height and width, this miniature flowering shrub will fit where its older sibling can’t! Tidbit® is one of the smallest Hydrangea paniculata selections available!

Fire Light Hydrangeas start out with broad, bright-green leaves with that classic Hydrangea texture! Then arrive white pompoms that elongate into pointed panicle spires! As they mature, the blooms become pink from the bottom up. Frost turns these wands tan and they look amazing as winter interest or as indoor dried décor! When white and pink the flowers look equally amazing in bouquets indoors as well!

Tidbit® Panicle Hydrangea are cold hardy to zone 3 and can handle up to zone 8 heat. Blooming all summer and into fall, these even take on a touch of the fall color that sets this apart from other Panicle Hydrangeas. Enjoy the orange and purple colors if the weather is just right!

  • Full Sun & Part Sun
  • Moist Well-Drained Soil
  • Color Isn’t pH-Dependent
  • Mulch Well & Prune Early Spring
