The large Hydrangea paniculata Vanille Fraise brings romance to the garden
The panicle hydrangea Vanille Fraise is a new cultivar from France that adds a romantic flair to the garden with its large white pink flowers up to 30cm long. The beautiful flowers bloom from July to October. During this time, the colour of the flowers changes from creamy white to a delicate to deep pink, and the flowering season ends in autumn with a deep red. When dried, the flowers are ideal for floristry as autumn decorations.
Care and location of the Vanille Fraise hydrangea
The Hydrangea paniculata 'Vanille Fraise' does not like dry soil, you should always make sure that the soil is slightly moist. However, it should be noted that it does not tolerate waterlogging, otherwise it has no special requirements for its soil, which should perhaps be somewhat rich in nutrients. When buying the Vanille Fraise hydrangea, the future location should already be considered. The Hydrangea paniculata Vanille Fraise loves a location in full sun, but it can certainly also be planted in partial shade, but it develops its full beauty best in a sunny location. The Vanille Fraise panicle hydrangea can be planted as a solitary or in a group. Its beautiful shape and appearance make it suitable for almost any garden and will delight onlookers with its splendour.
Flowering splendour as a screen
With its imposing height of up to 2 metres and a width of 100 – 150cm, the Vanille Fraise hydrangea is also perfect as a privacy screen on a patio or lawn, but it looks great as a flowering hedge. Like all hydrangeas, Hydrangea paniculata Vanille Fraise should only be pruned back in spring. The faded flowers of the panicle hydrangea are still very beautiful to look at in winter and provide perfect protection for the buds. Although the hydrangea loses its large, lively flowers in winter, the plant is very frost hardy. The Larkspur 'Blue Bird' or the High Iris 'Ola Kala' are ideal planting partners for a bed. If you want something a little quieter, plant Buchs or Photinia fraseri ' Red Robin' with the panicle hydrangea Vanille Fraise.
