The gorgeous blooms of Hydrangea Vanilla Strawberry™ add a pop of rich color to every garden or flower bed. The giant flowerheads begin their colorful journey as a pale green before changing to a luscious creamy-white and then darkening through all stages of pink into rosy-red. New blooms are constantly forming in mid- and late summer, so you see all colors on display at once at the height of the season.

And changing colors is just one of this PeeGee's merits. The flower trusses are so huge and heavy that their bright red stems flop toward autumn, creating a new look for the shrub. From upright to weeping, Hydrangea Vanilla Strawberry™ is magnificent.

Heat- and humidity-tolerant Vanilla Strawberry™ reaches 6 to 7 feet high and nearly as wide, a commanding presence whether grown as a specimen in the border, used in a long line as a hedge or windbreak, or integrated into a natural woodland setting. As with most hydrangeas, it prefers full sun in the northern zones but would benefit from part shade further south. Make sure the soil stays consistently moist, and Vanilla Strawberry™ will take off and grow quickly, often blooming the first year when it is still quite small.

Vanilla Strawberry™ was named the 2010 Plant of the Year by American nurserymen, and one season in your garden will show you why. Enjoy this beautiful shrub season after season.

This variety is slower to come out of dormancy compared to other Hydrangea varieties. Leaves will begin to show in late spring-early summer.
