Sweet Summer Panicle Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata ‘Bokrathirteen’) is a cool weather flowering shrub with tall spires of fluffy white blossoms! A large shrub or small tree with pruning, these are versatile and lighten the mood of any landscape with ease!

You’ll enjoy these wands of flowers of this Panicle Hydrangea as the brilliant white matures to a soft pink from the bottom up, before turning a botanical tan when they dry on the shrub for winter interest! Plus you’ll enjoy the occasional fall color when the bright green leaves exhibit yellow and purple tones on frost touched foliage.

Sweet Summer can reach a decent 3-5 feet in width and up to 4-6 feet in height, making them perfect for small ornamental tree-form specimens with pruning, or hedges and screening for your outdoor rooms!

Planting and Application:

Create friendly fences and back of the border barriers with these soft, informal shrubs! The tall spires of blossoms are so pleasant to view that no one will mind being screened by them! You’ll enjoy noise cancellation and privacy while inadvertently creating a bird-friendly shelterbelt and windbreak around your property!

Prune into a multi-trunked tree-form for a really unique specimen and focal point among other plants! Sweet Summer produces enough blooms to fill your vases indoors and supply your garden pollinators with plenty of nectar! Once these blooms dry on the shrubs, you’ll enjoy long-lasting winter interest as well as more dried décor for your crafts!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Panicle Hydrangeas love full sun but in hotter climates do appreciate afternoon shade. Plant in enriched well-drained soil with consistent moisture, especially throughout the summer. Prune once a year in early spring by trimming back by about 1/3 the size. Do this before it starts growing to remove old blooms, shape up and thin out old fatter stems closer to the ground as the plant ages, but only if needed.

  • Full Sun & Part Shade
  • Moist, Enriched Well-Drained Soil
  • Loves Mulched Beds
  • Prune Early Spring
  • Not pH-Dependent

Gorgeous blooms, the Sweet Summer Panicle Hydrangea will leave its mark on your landscape and get better every year! Order new and innovative flowering shrubs today at NatureHills.com!
