Bombshell Panicle Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata ‘Bombshell’)

Bombshell Panicle Hydrangea

Sweet and petite, the Bombshell Panicle Hydrangea bush (Hydrangea paniculata ‘Bombshell’) has a compact habit and is a prolific bloomer! It makes for quite the explosion in white as a garden focal point! Forming light and airy, loosely held clusters of smaller four-petaled blossoms! Emerging a bright green and opening into creamy white blossoms that last long through the summer and autumn!

Abundant blooms for you and your pollinators, these Panicle Hydrangeas cover themselves from summer until frost, reblooming in profusion! Backed by a wider-than-tall mound of textured, toothy green foliage! Bombshell Hydrangea is incredibly well balanced and has more flowers per plant than any other Panicle Hydrangea, a significant improvement for a shrub so small!

This plant is notorious for being extremely winter hardy. In fact, it outshines other Hydrangeas in this department and others as it thrives in urban conditions! It only asks for a mostly sunny spot in your garden to bask. Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 3-8, these cold-hardy shrubs keep themselves to a demure 2-3 feet in height and spread to a tidy 3-4 feet wide at maturity.

Planting and Application:

These compact shrubs are ideal for smaller gardens, container plantings and urban courtyards alike! Plant in a large container on both front porches or adorn your seating areas with frilly blossoms! Both in the ground or in a planter, these lacy blooms add finery and romance to your garden beds and borders!

Bombshell Hydrangeas make lovely cut flowers and are great for dried flowers or winter interest. It is loved by hummingbirds and butterflies! Use as an accent plant in pollinator gardens, or a cut flower border in your cottage garden! Plant a low hedge behind the perennial garden and in front of your home’s foundation plantings!
