Description / Hydrangea Dragon Baby™ Panicle Hydrangea

Dragon Baby™ Hydrangea, a standout Bloomin' Easy® variety among panicle hydrangeas, captures attention with its year-round charm. This dwarf deciduous shrub offers a continuous floral display from midsummer until the first frost, featuring cone-shaped flower clusters on new wood. With Rubenesque blooms atop long, thick stems and vibrant foliage transitioning to fall hues, Dragon Baby™ Hydrangea transforms from lime green to rich pink, making it perfect for fresh and dried arrangements.

Even after the first frost, this resilient shrub maintains its appeal. The flower clusters take on warm tones, complementing the shredding papery brown bark, which unveils glimpses of the underlying cinnamon hue of stems and branches. This adds a delightful textural element to winter gardens, especially in snowy landscapes. The empty stems offer ideal nesting spaces for bees, enriching the biodiversity of your garden.

Dragon Baby™ Hydrangea, known for its toughness and cold hardiness, stands out among panicle hydrangeas for its ease of growth. Thriving in hot, humid summers and adapting well to cooler temperatures, this multistemmed shrub boasts a compact, upright habit with semi-arching branches and a rapid growth rate.

Ideal for Zones 7-8 with morning sun and afternoon shade or Zones 3-6 with full to part sun, Dragon Baby™ prefers rich, loamy, moist, well-draining soil. Its adaptability shines through in various conditions, including alkaline and clay soils. Encourage abundant flowering by cutting back the plant by 1/3 of its total height each spring, just as new growth begins to emerge.

Dragon Baby™ is a panicle hydrangea that exceeds expectations, being generally pest-resistant, more sun and drought-tolerant than other hydrangeas, and remarkably tolerant of air pollution. Elevate your garden with the enduring beauty of Dragon Baby™ Hydrangea ? a Bloomin' Easy® variety that promises year-round allure and ease of care.
