Hydrangea paniculata Vanille-Fraise® ('Renhy'PBR) EU 22323
Hydrangea paniculata is famous worldwide for its massive flower panicles, but Vanille-Fraise® steps up to the majors. It owes its name to the beautiful white Hydrangea plumes that change to deep pink and red during the hot summer months: it’ll remind you of vanilla ice cream with strawberries! The best thing is that these stunning flower plumes keep their colour even after flowering. The profusely flowering Vanille-Fraise® has sturdy, red stems and reaches a mature width and height of about 1.5 metres, making it ideal for a natural, fragrant hedge or for adding some late summer colour to borders. She’ll thrive in a spot in the sun or partial shade, would like some protection from strong winds and prefers well-drained, rich soil. And there’s more good news: Hydrangea Vanille-Fraise® is also available on wood! Can you imagine a pair of them on either side of the front door?
