Hydrangea paniculata Lava Lamp Candelabra is a mid size cultivar growing to 4-6 feet tall and wide covered all summer and fall by conical inflorescences that emerge creamy white and quickly turn from pink to red starting with the lower flowers and moving upwards creating a study in white, pink and red. Paniculatas are among the hardiest of hydrangea and bloom on new wood producing flowers even after a hard pruning or a cold winter which are great for drying. They show some drought tolerance.
