Romantic flowers

Romantic flowers in colours from white to pinky red. That is the dwarf hydrangea 'Vesuvio' (Hydrangea paniculata)! The hardy dwarf hydrangea is a compact variation of the panicle hydrangea. The sturdy flowers of the 'Vesuvio' are white and after blooming turn a beautiful pink-red. The flowers bloom in the summer.
Prune the hydrangeas in spring to 40 cm above the ground. This results in the plant not growing higher than 1 metre. Unpruned plants reach 1.5 metres in height. The hydrangea can tolerate full sun and partial shade. Keep the ground moist, but not too wet. Give it extra water during dry periods.

Planting

What do I need?

• Bucket
• Trowel
• Garden peat

Make sure that the root system of the panicle hydrangea stays moist. Place the bush in a bucket of lukewarm water before planting. Create a spacious hole for planting and till the soil well. Place the Hydrangea paniculata at the correct height in the planting hole. The top side of the root ball should be just below ground level. Fill the hole up with potting soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting.

The panicle hydrangea grows best in very moist, humus-rich soil. Enrich the garden soil by adding compost. Give the bush a spot in full or half shade.

Combining the panicle hydrangea with other plants

The large flower panicles of the Hydrangea paniculata are truly a beautiful sight. This makes the shrub an exceptional choice for solo planting. This densely blooming hydrangea also looks stunning in a shrub border.

You can make a stunning combination with the American lilac (Ceanothus pallidaus ‘Marie Simon’). Filling a flower bed up entirely with this fantastic panicle hydrangea also creates a magical result.

Care

What do I need?

• Watering can
• Plant food
• Cow manure

How do I care for the hydrangea?

Water the panicle hydrangea a bit more often when it gets dry. It does not enjoy dry soil.

Pruning the panicle hydrangea

Hydrangea paniculata blooms on one-year-old branches. For this reason, you can prune all the branches on the panicle hydrangea down to 40 cm above the ground every spring. This stimulates compact growth and dense blooming. Would you prefer a large bush? If so, then pruning is absolutely not necessary.

If you do not prune it, this bush can grow to 4 metres tall and 1.75 metres wide.
 

Extra

Did you know that the florets of a panicle hydrangea are actually just an umbel with flowers that keep growing out from the centre? If you look at it that way, they are clearly related to the bigleaf hydrangeas with ‘globe-shaped umbels’ and the ‘flat umbels’ of the Hydrangea macrophylla.
