A Nature Hills EXCLUSIVE!

Elegant and refined, your garden needs this finishing touch! The French Manicure™ Panicle Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata 'Bailpantwo' PPAF) is just the final touch to any garden! Big, pointed blooms transform from creamy white to pink to almost red in some climates as the clusters of flowers age! Imagine one in your garden or a few glorious blooms in a vase indoors! They look fantastic both fresh and dried!

The huge, pointed flower panicles are tight and creamy white when they first open in summer. As the cool nights and warm days come in fall, you will notice the transformation of these amazing blooms where they color pink and red from the bottoms of the flower with white tips just like the best French manicure! The summer blooming continues to dazzle and draw pollinators to your landscape as the blooms change color. Even as the fall season progresses, the blooms dry and remain on the shrub for a fantastic winter show!

A super hardy, woody Panicle Hydrangea with a wildly compact and well-branched form – but at the same time, full-sized flowers with amazing color. French Manicure™ is fast-growing, there's no worry that your soil pH will change the color of the blooms - They stay true to their hue year after year! This deciduous shrub completely covers itself in magnificent blooms. French Manicure™ is easily maintained in the 4-5 foot rounded form with the once-a-year trim in late winter or early spring.

Planting and Application:

French Manicure™ looks lovely even when not in bloom, filling out with lush green, quilted foliage that has a delightful toothy edge. Use these mid-sized shrubs as backdrops and low hedging to define garden beds and define your property - anywhere in the sun! Ideal foundation plants and anchors to accent your home's front gardens and add curb appeal!

Imagine a long hedgerow of this incredible Hydrangea! French Manicure™ would make the perfect specimen among your perennial borders or Rose gardens, or as a focal point among mixed shrub borders! Stand a pair flanking the entrance to your home or a pathway leading to your gardens in the backyard. Accentuate seating areas and create outdoor rooms for privacy. The possibilities are endless with this showoff of a shrub!

  • Big Clusters of Pointed, Creamy White Blooms
  • Flowers Age to Pink & Even Red
  • Lush Green Quilted Foliage
  • Mid-Sized Easy Care Deciduous Shrub
  • Hedges & Property Definition, Specimens & Focal Points!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Panicle Hydrangeas do their very best and have the strongest stems in full sun, but French Manicure™ tolerates part shade as well! Plant Hydrangea in enriched, well-drained soils, and a 3-4 inch layer of mulch over the surface, should be all that is needed to keep this plant happy. A simple once-a-year pruning job in early spring before it starts to grow is all that is needed. Prune off the old blooms and shorten up any branches needed to give the plant a nice rounded form in the size you like.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Enriched Well-Drained Soil
  • Consistent Water Needs
  • Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Blooms on New Wood - Prune in Very Early Spring

A finishing touch of elegance, the French Manicure™ Panicle Hydrangea shrub is just the specimen plant for your landscape and your bouquets! Hurry and order this new exclusive flowering shrub today before they're sold out!
