What do I need?
• Garden peat
Make sure that the root system of the panicle hydrangea stays moist. Place the bush in a bucket of lukewarm water before planting. Create a spacious hole for planting and till the soil well. Place the Hydrangea paniculata at the correct height in the planting hole. The top side of the root ball should be just below ground level. Fill the hole up with potting soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting.
The panicle hydrangea grows best in very moist, humus-rich soil. Enrich the garden soil by adding compost. Give the bush a spot in full or half shade.
Panicle Hydrangea 'Diamant Rouge' - ShrubHydrangea paniculata 'Diamant Rouge'
The reddest of panicle hydrangeas!
This panicle hydrangea is exceptionally abundant and the colours change nicely too. Starting off white, they turn a lovely shade of red the older they get into August and fade wonderfully into autumn. The flower heads are enormous - 30-40 cm long! The flowers are on nice sturdy stems so make a great cut flower for a large vase too. Easily cared for, it's the perfect shrub for any garden or for in a large planter on the patio!Show more
Planting and flowering details

You can make a stunning combination with the American lilac (Ceanothus pallidaus ‘Marie Simon’). Filling a flower bed up entirely with this fantastic panicle hydrangea also creates a magical result.

Pruning the panicle hydrangeaHydrangea paniculata blooms on one-year-old branches. For this reason, you can prune all the branches on the panicle hydrangea down to 40 cm above the ground every spring. This stimulates compact growth and dense blooming. Would you prefer a large bush? If so, then pruning is absolutely not necessary.
If you do not prune it, this bush can grow to 4 metres tall and 1.75 metres wide.
Show moreDid you know that the florets of a panicle hydrangea are actually just an umbel with flowers that keep growing out from the centre? If you look at it that way, they are clearly related to the bigleaf hydrangeas with ‘globe-shaped umbels’ and the ‘flat umbels’ of the Hydrangea macrophylla.
