How to Grow and Care for Quick Fire Hydrangea Tree

Quick Fire Hydrangea Tree (Hydrangea paniculata ‘Bulk’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 3-8 outdoors


Spring and fall are the best times to plant hydrangeas. Hydrangeas can be planted in winter in areas where the ground is digable and in summer with plenty of water. This hydrangea prefers full sun to part sun and moist, well-drained, fertile soil.


Keep the soil moist, but not saturated, especially in summer and in the first year after planting. Throughout its life this hydrangea will do best with a deep watering once weekly when it is hot and dry.

Applying mulch at about 2 inches deep is highly recommended for hydrangeas. Mulching will cut back on watering needs and protect your hydrangea plant in extreme temperatures.


You don’t need to prune panicle hydrangeas, but pruning back during dormancy can help encourage a bushier growth, a uniform shape, and renew an older plant. This hydrangea blooms on new wood.


In the spring, apply a balanced slow-release fertilizer to support new growth and plenty of blooms.
