Hydrangea Vanilla Strawberry First Editions®
The enormous flower heads of this hydrangea are a blend of vanilla and strawberry, held upright on red stems. Flowers emerge creamy white in mid-summer, change to pink as the night temperatures drop, and finally turn strawberry red. New blooms emerge as older blooms change color, giving the plant a multicolored effect in late summer and early fall. The red coloring lasts at least 3-4 weeks. Plants grow upright, and then cascade later in the season. Flower color varies based on climate and growing conditions.
When planting, choose a spot with full sun. Vanilla Strawberry™ does best in full sun. with rich, well-drained soil. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. This summer-flowering shrub is hardy in zones 4-8.
