Hydrangea paniculata ‘Greenspire’ features long and pointy, conical panicles, up to 12 in. (30 cm), packed with sterile and fertile florets. The fertile florets retain their lime green color, while the sterile white florets become tinged with pink as they age. Blooming from midsummer to fall, the unusual but charming blossoms contrast nicely with the foliage of ovate, serrated leaves. Vigorous, ‘Greenspire’ can develop into a big bush and is particularly suitable for large gardens.

  • This deciduous shrub typically grows 6-10 feet tall and wide (180-300 cm).
  • Sun or partial sun lover, it thrives in rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils and tolerates heat, humidity and urban environment. Afternoon shade in hot summer climates is recommended.
  • Easy-to-grow plant with reliable flowering and flower color regardless of soil PH.
  • Mass in mixed shrub borders for dramatic summer blooms, in front of walls, fences, taller shrubs and trees. Great as an accent plant or hedge too. Panicles may be cut for fresh arrangements or for drying.
  • Best if pruned back in late winter or early spring. Blooms occur on current season’s growth, ensuring reliable flowering.
  • Hydrangea paniculata species is native to southern and eastern China, Korea, Japan and Russia.
  • Foliage can aggravate skin allergies. Mild stomach upset possible if ingested.
  • Toxic to dogs, toxic to cats, toxic to horses.
