Pannicle Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata)

Hydrangea paniculata "Pee Gee" during the "white" stage of flowering

Zone: 3 to 9
Exposure: Full sun to part sun
Height: 6′ to 10′
Width: 6′ to 10′
Bloom time: Late summer to fall
Flower color: White, pink, red, green

While there are many beautiful hydrangeas available, if you want the ones that bloom from late summer well into the fall, look for Hydrangea paniculata.

They have large cone shaped flower clusters, and change colors as they get older.

Most start the season with white blooms that then turn green, pink or even red as they get older.

The plants can grow into quite large bushes, are very cold hardy, don’t require a lot of maintenance and are relatively drought tolerant once established.

Since they bloom on new wood, they can be pruned back in the fall or early spring to keep their size in check.
