Special Attributes

For those familiar with the 'Quick Fire' Hydrangea, here's a miniature version appropriately named 'Little Quick Fire' Hydrangea. It's more compact size to only 3 to 5 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide make it an excellent selection for smaller garden spaces. About a month earlier than other H. paniculata cultivars, its upright flower panicles packed with showy florets emerge white then turning to pink and eventually to red to reddish-purple as summer progresses. The flowers are great for cutting and use in fresh or dried floral arrangements.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to only 3 to 5 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide feet wide, the Little Quick Fire Hydrangea makes an impressive specimen in smaller garden spaces or a colorful grouping or low hedge in larger spaces. A fine addition to mixed flowering shrub borders, as an accent in home foundation plantings, as a background in perennial gardens, and in medium to large containers

Spacing:  3' for solid hedges; 7' or more for space between plants

Note:  Little Quick Fire is a Hydrangea paniculata species that produces its flowers from buds that are formed on "new wood" (the current season's growth). This means you don't want to prune them in late spring or summer when they're preparing to bloom.
