FEATURES

If you thought you didn't have enough space to grow a beautiful, reliable panicle hydrangea, Fire Light Tidbit® hydrangea is here to help! This innovative new development is the tiniest, tidiest panicle hydrangea yet: it reaches just 2-3'/.6-.9m tall and wide, yet it packs in tons of easy-care beauty into its small size. Big, lush panicles of white mophead flowers appear in early-mid summer, nearly obscuring the textured green foliage. As the summer progresses, they begin to develop bright pink and red tones, which keep it colorful right on up to the first frost, especially combined with its colorful autumn foliage, an unusual trait in panicle hydrangeas. Thick, sturdy stems help to create a neat, mounded plant that's fantastic in landscapes, flower gardens, even in containers! We absolutely love this little beauty paired with the legendary Supertunia Vista Bubblegum petunia.

Top reasons to choose Fire Light Tidbit hydrangea for your garden or landscape:

- The smallest panicle hydrangea ever - just 2-3'/.6-.9m tall

- Powerful blooming ability, with dozens of full mophead flowers on strong stems

- Flowers go from white to rich, saturated tones of pink and red as they age
