Chantilly Lace Hydrangea
Chantilly Lace is a more compact pee gee type Hydrangea cultivar that produces an abundance of large white flowers in panicles that open white and turn to pink. It is later blooming than other varieties and will often bloom well into fall to first frost, when there's a need for color in the landscape. A real beauty and one that all should consider adding to their collection.

Chantilly Lace Hydrangea
Hydrangea paniculata 'Chantilly Lace'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 3a-8b  Find Your Zone > 

Note: For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Cold Hardiness Zone 3a, where this Hydrangea is not winter hardy, you'll be happy to know that it can be grown in containers which can be brought indoors during winter and place back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

‘Chantilly Lace’ is somewhat compact variety of Hydrangea paniculata (pee gee type) developed by the University of Georgia plant breeding program instituted by Michael Dirr. Growing to only 5 to 6 feet tall and wide, Chantilly Lace is a more compact cultivar that produces an abundance of large white flowers in panicles that open white and turn to pink. It is later blooming than other varieties and will often bloom well into fall to first frost, when there's a need for color in the landscape. A real beauty and one that all should consider adding to their collection.



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in an upright rounded form 7 to 8 feet tall and 6 to 7 feet wide, Chantilly Lace makes an impressive shrub or tree form specimen all on its own. That said, groupings and hedges of this cultivar are even more spectacular. Also a nice addition to mixed flowering shrub borders, as an accent in home foundation plantings, as a background in perennial gardens, and in large pots, planters or other containers of 18 inches or more in diameter.

Spacing:  5-6' for solid hedges; 9'+ for space between plants


Chantilly Lace Hydrangea is exceptionally easy to grow when planted right and in the right spot.  Almost any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility will do. Chantilly Lace can take the heat at our location here in north-central Georgia, but it's also exceptionally cold hardy, withstanding even the coldest winter temperatures as far north as USDA Zone 3a, where it will also tolerate full, all day sun. In the South, zones 7 and below, it will tolerate full sun, but we've seen it perform and look its best with some filtered sun or dappled shade during the hottest hours of summer afternoons. We recommend at least 5 hours of direct sunlight per day or all day lightly filtered sun for best flowering. Too much shade and plants become floppy with diminished flowering.

Note:  Chantilly Lace 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.
