Pee Gee Hydrangea- Hydrangea paniculata 'Grandiflora'
The Pee Gee Hydrangea, which is native to China and Japan, is the most common of the hydrangeas found in yards and gardens. It is so famous for a great reason. This Hydrangea is a shrub that can also be grown to look like a tree with the proper pruning and training using a staked stem. This versatility makes it very desirable and adds a unique quality to a beautiful plant. It is sometimes called the “tree hydrangea” because of this unique ability. This Hydrangea is lush with dark green leaves that grow oval and whorl towards the tips of the leaves. It blooms from July to September, unleashing a bounty of creamy white flowers that create cone-shaped panicles. The flowers turn into a lovely shade of light pink over time and give off a strong, sweet scent. Thinning of the plant can lead to an increase in the size of the flower panicles. The branches of this plant start in the center and reach out in a fountain formation. This gives it an elegant appearance when it is not pruned as a tree. The bark is a brown color with a hint of gray, but it is not very visible if the plant is not pruned.
The fast growth rate and density of these hydrangeas make them ideal as hedges, but they also work well as eye-catching lawn specimens when trained to grow as small trees.
