Hydrangea paniculata of remarkable beauty precisely due to the large and abundant inflorescences with even thirty centimeters long clusters, which appear formed of only sterile flowers, composed of four overlapping and elliptical sepals. In reality the frequent presence of bees around these reveals to us the erroneousness of the first impression: a closer examination will not in fact escape the existence of numerous fertile flowers, even if concealed by the tailings. It can be left to grow like a large, vigorous bush, or be regularly pruned to obtain a smaller number of inflorescences but of a larger size. Probably the most popular among the paniculate, the antique pink of its flowers adds something precious to the autumn colors of the gardens.

Unique


Height: from 300 to 400 centimeters
Leaf: small, elliptical, rough, serrated edge
Flowering: from July to the end of summer
Inflorescence: long paniceles of sterile pure white flowers with overlapping sepals, which alternate with the fertile and are tinged with pink as the season progresses
This Hydrangea was obtained in 1968 from the selection of a group of H. paniculata "Floribunda" whose inflorescences were often damaged by birds. From this selection only one specimen remained that did not present this inconvenience and was duly called "unique".
Unlike the other H. paniculata the tip of the inflorescence is formed only by sterile flowers.
It forms vigorous bushes, very wide at the base and rounded in shape.

Praecox


Height: reaches about 300 centimeters
Leaf: elliptical, sharp, smooth, serrated edge
Flowering: from late spring to the end of July
Inflorescence: short and broad panicels with fertile flowers mostly, especially in the center, and pure white sterile flowers composed of 4 or 5 separate sepals and of different length
Native to Japan, it is the earliest among the Paniculate for flowering which, despite it lasts only three to four weeks, is spectacular and abundant. Also in March-April, even before the flowers bloom, the leaves open up to a delicious golden yellow, thus enriching the spring shades of the gardens.

Pink Diamond



Height: reaches about 200 centimeters
Leaf: oval, serrated edge
Flowering: from the end of June to September
Inflorescence: conical, about 30 cm long and 20 wide at the base, consists of
fertile and sterile flowers.
If allowed to grow freely, this cultivar forms huge bushes, while through adequate pruning smaller bushes will be obtained, but with much larger inflorescences. These are colored from the base towards the tip of various shades of pink, the more lit the more sunny the position of the plant. The central stems have an erect habit, while the peripheral ones tend to fall slightly under the weight of the inflorescences: the effect is soft, light, bright.

Hydrangea Paniculata: Dolly


Height: 200 centimeters
Leaf: elliptical, rough, serrated edge.
Flowering: from June to October
Inflorescence: panicelo of considerable size, white, with arches curved inwards.
Harmonious and vigorous bush with large paniceloous inflorescences. The branches are very sturdy and carry cream-white flowers, whose sepals, although completely mature, never appear perfectly extended, but retain a marked concave shape. The rigid, almost austere habit of this particular bush is softened by the color of the flowers as they grow older, which takes on a delicate rosy hue.
