We fell in love with Hydrangea paniculata Bobo 'Ilvobo' the moment we saw it. This dwarf panicle hydrangea grows to just three feet tall and four feet wide and blooms so heavily with its creamy white, conical inflorescences from early summer to fall that you can hardly see the foliage with flowers right down to the ground! In fall the flowers develop a pinkish hue. Paniculatas are super hardy, bloom on new wood, are fragrant, and make good dried flowers.
