Uses Notes:

Maintenance Notes:
Panicle hydrangeas like Quick Fire are very easy to care for. They can grow in most soils, provided they are well-drained. Panicle hydrangeas bloom on new wood, which means they can be pruned in spring and will still bloom that season. We recommend cutting them back by about one-third their total height in early spring, just as the new growth is beginning to emerge on the stems. This will serve to remove the spent blooms and ensure that the season’s growth comes from the heavier, thicker buds further down the plant. If blooms do not age to pink and red, this indicates that the plant is either in too much shade, that it experienced drought stress, or that night time temperatures were unusually high.

Microbiota decussata Siberian Cypress or Russian Cypress Microbiota decussata, commonly called Siberian cypress or Russian arborvitae, is a dwarf, evergreen conifer that forms a shrubby ground cover to 8-12” tall with indefinitely spreading stems that nod at the tips. May spread to as much as 10-12’. It is native to mountainous areas of southeastern Siberia. Feathery, soft-textured, scalelike (infrequently awl-shaped) foliage is arranged in flat, fan-like sprays reminiscent of arborvitae (Thuja). Plants also resemble in habit some of the horizontal junipers. Foliage is bright green in summer changing to bronze-purple in fall and winter. Fruits are tiny, spherical, berry-like cones (to 1/4” diameter) with woody-like scales. Common Name: Russian arbor-vitae Type: Needled evergreen Family: Cupressaceae Native Range: Southeastern Siberia Zone: 3 to 7 Height: 0.50 to 1.50 feet Spread: 3.00 to 12.00 feet Bloom Time: Non-flowering Bloom Description: Non-flowering Sun: Full sun to part shade Water: Medium Maintenance: Low Suggested Use: Ground Cover Leaf: Evergreen Other: Winter Interest
