More Information

Description Little Quick Fire® panicle hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata) is a dwarf version of Quick Fire®, the earliest blooming panicle hydrangea. Planting this super easy carefree flowering shrub extends the flowering season by several weeks – it’s always in bloom by 4th of July for us here in Michigan! Creamy-white lacecap blooms cover the plant in early summer; they turn a deep red in later summer for an extremely long-lasting and colorful display. Little Quick Fire® hydrangea has distinctively handsome foliage and excellent fall color, two additional features that set it apart from other varieties. It has so many great qualities, it truly merits a spot in your garden. Details Botanical name: Hydrangea paniculata 'SMHPLQF'
Patent #: USPP 25,136
Common name: hydrangea, Peegee hydrangea, Hardy hydrangea
Zone: 3-8
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun) in cool areas; part-sun (4-6 hours sun) in warm climates.
Height x width: 3-5' tall and wide
Flower color: White, turning red in autumn
Foliage color: Green
Season of Interest: Summer-fall
Uses: Flower gardens, landscaping, specimen, flowering hedge.
How To Grow Soil: Panicle hydrangeas require well-drained soil. Though they are the most sun and drought tolerant of all hydrangeas, for best performance, don't let them dry out excessively. A good layer of mulch is very helpful for minimizing drought stress and conserving moisture.
Light: plants can take full sun (6+ hrs/day) in cooler areas, but afternoon shade is recommended in warm climates. If your plant frequently wilts in the afternoon even though it was recently watered, or your flowers turn brown quickly, that may indicate the spot is too sunny for it.
Water: Average. Panicle hydrangeas do not tolerate overwatering or poor drainage.
Space: Min. 6' apart
Fertilizing: If desired, fertilize in early spring, once the ground has thawed, with a granular rose fertilizer.
Winterizing: Panicle hydrangeas are very hardy and easily withstand harsh winters, so need no special care. A good 2-3" layer of mulch helps protect the shallow roots. We recommend pruning in late winter/early spring (see below for more info) but plants can be pruned in late autumn, after they've gone completely dormant, if desired.
Maintenance: Panicle hydrangeas bloom on new wood; that means they create their flower buds after leafing out in spring, so they can be pruned and will still bloom that season. While pruning is not strictly necessary, it does neaten the plant's appearance and can help develop strongest stems. Simply cut the main stems of the plant back by about one-third its total height in late winter or early spring, removing any thin or spindly or wayward branches as necessary.

My little plant arrived in very good shape. It has started to grow a little since I planted it. Will love to see how it gets along for next year's season.

Lookin Good

Small plant in excellent shape. Planted it within one week after arrival and it still looks great. No growth but it is green and appears to be doing well so far.

Tiny little shrub!

Plants arrived healthy and are doing well, but it’ll be five years before they look like the picture in the catalogue. I guess I didn’t realize what “one quart container” looked like. Quite expensive for what they are
