If you are a fan of rich colours on panicle hydrangeas FRAISE MELBA® is a great choice. It is an improvement of an award-winning variety VANILLE FRAISE® from 2006 bred by the same French breeder Jean Renault. US patent No. PP28509 was granted in 2017.

FRAISE MELBA® panicle hydrangea makes about 16 cm long and 12 cm wide panicles composed of mostly sterile (showy) flowers which emerge pale lime green and change to creamy white. However, earlier than others they turn glowing pink and purple pink as they mature during colder nights of late summer. They bloom from mid July atop maroon-flushed stems which are strong enough to hold the inflorescences upright without bending even after a heavy rain.

Within 7-10 years the plant gets some 1,5-2m tall and a little less wide. Plants require hard pruning in early spring (March) – cut back all last year’s growth to some 10 cm only and remove all thin or ill branches to encourage new and strong growth.

It will grow in almost any soil type, preferably humus-rich, moist soil that will not be too heavy or shallow. Once established it does not need extra watering like big-leaf hydrangeas. Full sun is best but it will grow in part shade, too. Feeding is much recommended to enhance flower size. Plants are hardy to at least -34 °C (USDA zone 4) and suitable for outdoor planters.
