Silver Dollar Panicle Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata ‘Silver Dollar’)

Silver Dollar Panicle Hydrangea

Do you love hydrangeas but don’t have the space? Silver Dollar Panicle Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata ‘Silver Dollar) is just what you’re looking for. This small but mighty beauty blooms with full-sized flowers in a more compact form than you’d expect from a Panicle Hydrangea.

The big green leaves fill out in the spring and early summer. Then in mid-summer through fall Silver Dollar covers itself in dense trusses of lacy, creamy-white blooms held upright on strong stems. The whole effect is romantic and nostalgic! Butterflies and bees will add to the beauty all summer long.

Silver Dollar only grows 4′ – 5’ tall and wide making it great for smaller gardens and side yards. Hydrangea makes great cut flowers and dries easily, giving you gorgeous fresh cuts in summer and rich floral displays in fall and winter, both indoors and out!

Planting and Application:

Plant Silver Dollar with Azaleas and Rhododendrons for flower power all season in dappled shade. It makes a pretty accent plant but really shines in groups of three or more. The rich green leaves are fantastic backdrops to the garden bed and border and the tidy rounded form makes ideal anchors!

Just tall enough to be great privacy and screening, seclude your backyard seating areas in big flouncy blooms and lush green foliage! Densely branched enough to provide great cover and nesting for birds, create wildlife shelterbelts and groupings at the edges of your property. Lovely additions to cottage gardens, you’ll boost curb appeal with a pair of fluffy white sentries welcoming you home on either side of the driveway!
