Hydrangea paniculata Fire Light has upright panicles packed with florets which transform from pure white in summer to rich pomegranate-pink in late summer to fall. Its thick, sturdy, burgundy stems hold up the beautiful flowers so they are prominently displayed in the garden. An exceptional landscape shrub for foundation planting, back of the border or cutting garden. Paniculatas are super hardy, bloom on new wood, are fragrant, and make good dried flowers.
