It's an irresistible combination: big blooms on a compact shrub. Add the fact that these particular flowers open lime-green, then quickly turn creamy white, soft pink, and finally darkest red, and you have the makings of a showstopping garden or container display. Welcome Strawberry Sundae®, a compact, heavy-blooming, easy-care PeeGee Hydrangea.
Hydrangea Strawberry Sundae® reaches just 4 to 5 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide, compact enough for a large container. It is very dense and bushy, with handsome toothed leaves of bright green below the blooms.
But the flowers completely steal the show on this beauty. Beginning in early summer, long, thick, pointed wands begin arising, packed with florets. They keep coming for several months, so you'll see all flower colors present at the same time on the shrub. Cut all you like for fresh or dried bouquets, but save a few for garden enjoyment too. Magnificent.
This hydrangea is a PeeGee type, one of the cold-hardiest of all. Given moist garden or potting soil, it will grow readily and bloom for many years in border or container. Site it in full sunshine in northern climates, or a bit of dappled or partial shade in southern and western areas.
You will love this French introduction from breeder Jean Renault. So much flower power in such a compact package. Enjoy ever-changing, always-beautiful Hydrangea Strawberry Sundae® in your landscape.
This variety is slower to come out of dormancy compared to other Hydrangea varieties. Leaves will begin to show in late spring-early summer.
