Quick Fire Hardy Hydrangea...named for it early bloom season where color is enjoyed about a month before other varieties. Never be bored with the color from this guy, as the blossoms open white and transform into a nice pink as the season progresses. The Quick Fire hydrangea would be the 'go to' shrub in the mixed border or mass planted, as one would always have a fresh display of color as each day goes by. Consider using hydrangea blooms even as a cut flower, a stunning addition to the vase arrangement. The Quick Fire hydrangea is hardy to USDA zone 3 and all higher zones, so use with confidence even if you live in a very cold area. Plant in some afternoon shade for best performance. Growth to about 6 to 8 feet tall and wide or easily clip to shape. Deciduous. Good for mass planting, the woodland or cottage garden or even for erosion control. Shipped potted in soil for best possible results when planted in yard or garden.
