Vanille Fraise® is a breathtaking novelty among panicle hydrangeas. It bears extra large flowers that emerge clear white in midsummer, turning light pink first and deep raspberry pink in late summer. The panicles are up to 30 cm long and 20 cm wide and remain on the plant for a long period of time.

Deciduous leaves are ovate to oval, pointed, deep green. Stems are strong, deep burgundy red. We recommend regular pruning every spring before the buds begin to swell. By cutting at least two thirds of previous year’s growth you will get a strong shrub with large flowers and a regular framework shape. This hydrangea makes a dense bush covered with flowers from August till October.

It will grow in almost any soil type, preferably humus-rich, moist soil that will not too heavy or shallow. Once established it does not extra watering like big-leaf hydrangeas. Full sun is best but it will grow in shade, too. Feeding is much recommended to enhance flower size. Experienced hardiness is -29°C (USDA zone 5) but is supposed to take much stronger frost.
