This Panicle Hydrangea is as sweet as its name! The Little Lamb (Hydrangea paniculata 'Little Lamb') has the smallest and most graceful flower petals of any Panicle Hydrangea on the market. Even though the petals appear delicate, Little Lamb is from hardy stock. Originating in Belgium, this dense deciduous shrub can handle just about any garden situation!
The flowers are lambs-wool white and get a sweet little pink-cheek blush on them as they age. Unlike other Hydrangeas, the soil pH doesn't affect the color. No need to fuss over the acidity of the bed or worry that your blooms will turn blue or hot pink if you haven't got it just right. While the name might be deceiving, Little Lamb can react 6-8 feet in height and spread to a descent 5-6 feet in width!
The white flowers are held high in strong panicles above the green foliage for a really long bloom season, from summer through fall. There are so many of the little 'lambs' on the shrub that you will be cutting armloads of flowers to bring inside or give away all season long. The flowers dry beautifully, too, so you can save some for winter decorating. Little Lamb is a Proven Winners selection, so you can be assured that planting this exceptional Panicle Hydrangea will provide superb performance in your yard this year.
Use Little Lamb to fill large gaps between holes in your privacy hedges or to cover unsightly neighbors, HVAC units, or block the view from the street. Fantastic backdrops along your garden beds and the perennial border where the flouncy loose blossoms attract pollinators and are perfect for snipping and adding to bouquets! High adaptability to urban conditions, these stand up to modern conditions.
Perfectly sized to be an incredible specimen or even limbed up into a multi-trunk tree-form focal point, you'll be amazed by the tall blossoms and strong stems! Turning tan in the autumn, you'll enjoy further interest until winter. Snip these blooms when dried for winter and botanical décor! A wall of these tall blooms will certainly set your home apart from the rest as nicely as a single accent in your front yard!
Panicle Hydrangeas need full sun for the biggest blooms and strongest stems. Cold hardy throughout USDA growing zones 3-9, these easy-to-grow ornamental flowering shrubs do best when planted in moist to average soil that's well-drained and highly organic. You may prune every year, for size and to remove old growth, but no more than 1/3 of the plant. Only prune in the very early spring or you'll accidentally remove next year's blooms.
Tall panicles and frilly blushed blossoms full of dainty petals, the Little Lamb Hydrangea will have a huge impact on your landscape! Nature Hills has a limited selection of this in-demand Panicle Hydrangea, so don't wait to order yours!
