This shrub Hydrangea with supple growth, deciduous foliage and red stems, reaches a height and a spread of 2.00 m. Its vegetation is dense.
VANILLE FRAISE ® is attractive in its flowering period from July to October. This variety has an extraordinary cameo of perfect panicles: white in the height of summer, quickly turning pink, then dark red. These colour shades can vary according to exposure, climate and type of soil.
The different varieties of the Hydrangea paniculata range, supplied by SAPHO, go well in a shrub border together with perennials or in a pot.
VANILLE FRAISE ® is the first selection of this series: its superb cameo has been much acclaimed by professionals as well as amateurs, a success, which is spreading around the world!
To see the full evolution of colours in the panicles, avoid watering directly onto the flowers.
Cut back hard at the end of winter.
