Fire and Ice Hydrangea
Blooms Change Color Each Season!
Find a special place for this thrilling new Panicle Hydrangea! 'Fire and Ice' changes bloom color every few weeks, creating a season-long play of hue that never ceases to fascinate. This ultra-compact Hydrangea is just right for garden or large container, delighting with long wands of brilliant color.
The blooms open cream-colored in early spring, standing out beautifully against the bright green foliage on plants 3 to 5 feet high and wide. By midsummer blushes of pink have overtaken the florets, and soon the entire plume is a rich shade of cotton-candy pink. Then, beginning in late summer and continuing throughout autumn, the flowers acquire a deep, intense shade of magenta-burgundy. Stunning!
Best in part shade, 'Fire and Ice' will become the focal point of any setting. It's a good choice for the foundation or along the driveway, where its bloom changes can be followed on a daily basis, but it also works well in border and woodland garden. Truly unique, it deserves a place of honor! Zones 3-8.
