#ProPlantTips for Care:

Panicle Hydrangeas love sunny or part sun locations, appreciating afternoon shade in hot climates. Plant in well-drained with evenly moist soils, especially when blooming. Prune in early spring by cutting back by about one-third the size before it starts growing to remove old blooms and shape the plant as needed. Also, thin out older, fatter stems closer to the ground at this time to revitalize growth.

  • Full Sun & Part Sun
  • Moist Enriched Soil
  • Thick Layer of Mulch
  • Prune in Early Spring
  • Not pH Color Sensitive
