Blooms are on fire!

Hydrangea paniculata Flare™

Panicles of bright red flowers stand atop compact plants, setting your garden space ablaze with all summer interest

Once your neighbors see the bright flicker of Flare, they’ll want to plan all of their happy hours in your outdoor living space. Beginning in summer, lacy white panicles of lava-like blooms quickly change in color from white to red. With the compact habit of Flare, even the smallest of gardens will have room for this showy hydrangea. For all summer interest, plant Flare along a walkway, in a mixed border, or in a big, decorative container on the patio. Another introduction from the Bloomin’ Easy program, where the idea is to select these new, low maintenance selections, so “you’ll have more time to relax and enjoy the view.”

This plant is sold exclusively through the Bloomin Easy® brand.
