A prolific bloomer that does not flop

Hydrangea paniculata Magical® Candle

Immense, porcelain-white flower heads appear backlit as if to create a surreal glow of soft, yellow flowers above tall, erect stems. A robust grower, the dense, lacy panicles of this variety are among the most beautiful in its class.

The family hydrangea is valued for endless varieties of flowering shrubs and vines, which bloom in spring and are appropriate for the shade garden. That is of course, until we consider Hydrangea paniculata, the panicle hydrangea.  This is where we find some showy specimens for full sun. Paniculatas flower reliably each summer regardless of climate, pruning, or in most cases, the pH of your soil. Spectacular in the landscape, these no-fuss beauties generally form large, vase-shaped shrubs that support showy, cone-shaped flowers. Until now... We are proud to be working with Kolster, B.V., who represents Boot & Co., a fabulous breeding company focused on panicle hydrangeas, in The Netherlands. The new selections coming from this partnership breeding program are sure to please with their colorful, full-bodied blooms and shorter , more compact habits.

Immense, porcelain-white flower heads appear backlit to create a surreal glow of soft, yellow flowers above tall, erect stems. A robust grower, the dense, lacey panicles of this variety are among the most beautiful in its class. A lovely choice for the summer garden, when so many flowering shrubs have taken a rest, Candle will give you plenty of enjoyment from July-Sept. Tuck it into the back border and step away - aside from a little pruning, paniculatas are relatively trouble free.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
