White Wedding Panicle Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata ‘LeeP1’)
White Wedding Panicle Hydrangea
You won’t believe the flower power on cold-hardy, heat-tolerant, panicle White Wedding® Panicle Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata ‘LeeP1’)! Large, pillow-like, cone-shaped blooms start off lime green and age bright white! Emerging in late spring, they absolutely cover this perfectly rounded, compact shrub on strong, sturdy stems!
Enjoy their beautiful blooms from early summer onwards until frost. Leave them to dry on the bush for natural winter interest, or cut White Wedding flowers for sophisticated bouquets indoors both fresh and dried! Backed by toothy textured deep green leaves, these are fantastic mid-sized flowering shrubs that call butterflies and shelter birds.
Part of the popular Southern Living Plant Collection, carefree White Wedding® is one tough plant! Hardy throughout a wide range of USDA growing zones 4 through 9, these are low-maintenance deciduous shrubs! Count on these reliable, high-performance shrubs for crisp, season-long color.
White Wedding Hydrangea dazzles in the garden and is suited for many applications. Try a pair of them on either side of an entrance as a hard-working, long-lasting flowering accent! Create a showy hedge with a smaller White Wedding in front of taller Hydrangeas, like Limelight, or mature evergreens. They bring a crisp, polished look to your landscape, but require little effort.
Plant them three feet apart on center for a solid screen; measuring from the center of one to the center of the next. Stagger additional rows in a zig-zagging planting pattern and en masse them to fill a bland, boring, bare area with pretty flowers! Line your yard with these attractive flowering shrubs, and you’ll always have plenty of fresh material for cut flower arrangements. You’ll love having such a decorative landscape asset that brings such joy!
Panicle Hydrangea performs in both full sun or partial shade with at least four hours of direct sunlight a day. Well-drained soil is best, but you won’t need to worry about soil pH with this adaptable choice. It puts up with just about any soil type and handles more sunlight than other Hydrangeas! White Wedding blooms on new wood, so prune it back by a third in early spring. Remove crossing branches and any branches that may be damaged.
Bridal-worthy White Wedding® Panicle Hydrangea will add elegance and gorgeous panicle blooms to your landscape and your home’s interior décor!
