As the name suggests, the Quick Fire is unique among hydrangeas because it blooms about a month before any other panicle hydrangea. This means you’ll have beautiful colors in your garden from early July into the fall. Blooms start out pure white, eventually, turn pink and finally settle into an extremely dark rosy pink in the fall. The Quick Fire also has excellent fall foliage color so you’ll retain some pop in
your garden even after it finishes blooming. Blooms are produced on new wood, which means you’ll have new flowers even after the harshest winter.
Here are three great reasons to grow Quick Fire hydrangea:
The earliest blooming panicle hydrangea gives you more color than any other variety.
Deep rosy pink blooms and gold and burgundy leaves provide great color in fall.
Beautiful for use as a cut flower, either fresh or dried.

A very hardy flowering shrub good for full sun locations – the hotter your climate, however, the more shade the plant will require. Perfect for a mixed container. Good for groupings and in mass plantings, shrub and perennial borders, as a specimen, a screen or a hedge.
Panicle hydrangeas like Quick Fire are very easy to care for. They can grow in most soils, provided they are well-drained.
Panicle hydrangeas bloom on new wood, which means they can be pruned in spring and will still bloom that season. We recommend cutting them back by about one-third their total height in early spring, just as the new growth is beginning to emerge on the stems. This will serve to remove the spent blooms and ensure that the season’s growth comes from the heavier, thicker buds further down the plant.
If blooms do not age to pink and red, this indicates that the plant is either in too much shade, that it experienced drought stress, or that night time temperatures were unusually high.

\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_element_layout_column][cs_element_layout_column _id=”16″ ][cs_element_text _id=”17″ ][cs_content_seo]Zones are based on the lowest average temperature an area is expected to receive during the winter. They are used to determine whether a plant is likely to be perennial in your area. If your zone is equal to or higher than the zone listed for the plant, it will be hardy for you and thrive in your climate.
