Hydrangea 'Vanille Fraise', Panicle Hydrangea 'Vanille Fraise', Paniculate Hydrangea 'Vanille Fraise', Hydrangea paniculata 'Vanilla Strawberry', Hydrangea paniculata 'Renhy' PP20670


Perfect for adding late summer color to the shrub border, Hydrangea paniculata 'Vanille Fraise' features loose, fluffy, pyramid-shaped flower heads at the tips of gracefully arching branches in summer. Opening creamy white in mid-summer, the florets turn to strawberry-pink as they age, before finally taking on rich pinkish-red tones as fall approaches. The large blossoms retain their red color for 3-4 weeks prior to turning brown. Strong, easy care and long-lived, this ornamental shrub is perfect to create a very showy flowering effect.

  • Fast growing, this deciduous shrub has an upright habit and grows up to 6-8 ft. tall (180-240 cm) and 4-5 ft. wide (120-150 cm).
  • Sun or partial sun lover, it thrives in rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils and tolerates heat 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.
  • Can cause mild stomach upset if ingested and contact with foliage may aggravate skin allergies.
