Tri-Color Blooms and Year-Round Interest

The Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea, Hydrangea paniculata 'Renhy', is truly a miracle of nature with its playful strawberry-pink blooms and graceful nature.

Place a Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea by itself anywhere in your yard for an eye-catching specimen plant, or use a few at the back of a border.  These would also be wonderful as a hedge, their appeal reaching beyond summer and into the winter months.

The show begins in spring with green leaves filling out the stems that later turn a lovely red shade. Mid-summer brings panicles of densely-clustered, tiny flowers that begin creamy white and slowly transition. 

As summer progresses, you’ll be treated to a mixture of floral color on the same plant as white turns to white with pink centers…to deeper strawberry red. 

This orchestra of color will continue throughout summer and into fall, the branches artistically arching as the heavy blooms mature. 

Cut some of the stunning Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea blooms to enjoy indoors, or leave on your plant for winter.  The flowers will cling to the stems (turning a pale shade), and persist as a decorative feature through the winter months.

Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea is clearly a magnificent variety.  It was even named top plant by the American Nursery and Landscape Association in 2010. 

A relative of the classic PeeGee Hydrangea, Vanilla Strawberry’s improved features make it a must-have for your garden.  It will reach 7 feet tall with a 5 foot spread, and is quite easy to care for. 

It loves the sun, and with adequate water will certainly outperform your expectations for a low maintenance, flowering plant. 

You’ll also be popular with hummingbirds, bees, butterflies and all the other necessary pollinators that contribute to the beauty of your yard.  Clearly, Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea is one-of-a-kind, and a perfect addition for your yard today!
