Hydrangea Vanilla Strawberry™

Pointed bloomheads offer tons of texture and color!

Ships in Fall at the proper planting time for your zone. View Schedule

The gorgeous blooms of 'Vanilla Strawberry' Hydrangea 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, '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! Zones 4-9.

I've had this hydrangea for several years and it's amazing. I'm almost 6' tall and it's well over my head. The more you water it the bigger the blooms will be. It also makes beautiful dried arrangements. A must have in your yard.

I've had my 'Nilla for 2 seasons, now, and I LOVE the beauty she adds to my side yard. She is just to the side of a large climbing rose of nearly the same pink that comes up near the point of "old" for these blooms, so they set off very nicely together. The flower heads are HUGE to me, and are wonderful with 2 in a vase along with a few roses or lilies. I plan on getting likely 2 more of this type (there are new cultivers of different colors I want to have, too!), one for the front yard and one for the back. I just hope my husband isn't too mad with me taking away more yard for the gardens. ;)
