Care of the plant Hydrangea paniculata or Panicled hydrangea

The genus Hydrangea, family Hydrangeaceae, comprises 40 species of shrubs, trees and climbing plants native to Asia and America. Some species are: Hydrangea paniculata, Hydrangea macrophylla, Hydrangea arborescens, Hydrangea serratifolia, Hydrangea petiolaris.

Common name: Panicled hydrangea. This species is native to China, Korea, Japan and Russia.

They are fast-growing, erect, deciduous shrubs that reach 3 meters in height. These hairy-branched plants have graceful light green leaves and a pointed oval shape. The flowers are creamy-white in color and appear in conical clusters. They bloom from late summer to early fall.

They are used as isolated specimens, in groups, together with Hydrangea macrophylla and in pots. They can also be used for dried flower.

The Hydrangea paniculata will live prefers a semi-shade exposure; in not excessively hot summer regions they can grow in full sun. Protect them from prolonged frosts.

The soil must contain plenty of organic matter and be well drained. Planting or transplanting is done in spring.

Water abundantly (never overwater) so that the substrate is always wet; they do not withstand drought. In winter water every 8-10 days.

Fertilize with compost or manure in late winter and with mineral fertilizer every 2 weeks in spring and summer.

Prune lightly in early spring to promote flowering.

They are quite resistant plants to the usual pests and diseases.

They propagate in summer from cuttings.
