Little Quick Fire® panicle hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata) is one of the earliest blooming panicle hydrangeas with a compact habit. Blooms persist all summer long, shifting from a creamy white to a deep red in early fall as they age. The flowers aren't the only thing that will change colors! This is one of the only panicle hydrangeas that taken on an excellent fall foliage color as well.
Though not all hydrangeas are very pollinator-friendly, thankfully, Little Quick Fire® is! The lacecap blooms prominently display their nectar-rich florets, which pollinators adore. Since the flowers are not as tightly packed together, it's easy for bees and butterflies to reach the nectar reserves and pollen.

Small plant in excellent shape. Planted it within one week after arrival and it still looks great. No growth but it is green and appears to be doing well so far.
Plants arrived healthy and are doing well, but it’ll be five years before they look like the picture in the catalogue. I guess I didn’t realize what “one quart container” looked like. Quite expensive for what they are
I'm sorry to hear your disappointed in the size of your new plant. You'd be quite surprised to see just how quickly these plants grow! I've included a link to our size chart for reference. If you have any other questions or concerns, don't hesitate to reach out. We appreciate your feedback!
A late season purchase. Alive and looking good. Expecting growth will start in Spring.
My plants arrived quickly and in great condition! I will definitely order again and highly recommend !
When my ten plants arrived I was very excited! I planted them along with root stimulant and fertilizer under protective wire cloches. They have almost outgrown their cloches with their full, green, leafy branches. This was my first order from you and I am very pleased with the plant quality! Thank you!
