Full Sun, Partial Sun

The Strawberry Sundae® Hydrangea is a compact form of the panicle hydrangea, and it flowers readily and reliably even in zone 3. Forming a strong, upright bush no more than 5 feet tall, its deciduous leaves are dark green and bold, with serrated edges. The flowers open white in mid-summer, and gradually turn gorgeous strawberry pink as the weather cools, with a period when both pink and white is on the same bush. By mid-fall they are completely dark pink. Grow this easy plant in beds, along paths and driveways, in planter boxes or large pots, and anywhere you need a tough plant with reliable and beautiful flowers.

  • Large conical flower heads are creamy-white from mid-summer
  • Flowers turn strawberry red as night temperatures fall
  • Compact bush for smaller gardens
  • Reliable blooming even in zone 3
  • Easily grown even in urban gardens

The Strawberry Sundae® Hydrangea will grow in any well-drained soil that is not too dry. It will grow well in both full sun and light partial shade – in hotter zones afternoon shade is beneficial. It is relatively drought-resistant, but regular watering during dry weather is recommended. It has no pests or diseases, and the only care needed is a simple spring pruning. The more you cut it back at that time, the larger the flower heads will be, but lighter pruning gives you more flowers – the balance is up to you.
