Pee Gee Hydrangea -  Hydrangea paniculata

The Pee Gee Hydrangea is a very versatile tree that will enhance any garden with its beautiful blooms. It's a showy bloomer that's easy to grow. It is adaptable and blooms large blossoms in mid-to-late- summer. The clusters of white flowers last for a long time and as they age the blooms turn many lovely shades from pale pink to deep red until the fall. The flowers are fantastic for use in decorating projects and are great for drying. The Pee Gee Hydrangea does well on its own or in groups. One thing is for sure though it is a real attention grabber, and when covered in thick beautiful blooms it is nothing short of breathtaking.

Pee Gee hydrangeas are a flowering shrub, and the spread can vary due to pruning and their growing conditions. These beautiful shrub's white flowers bloom in the mid to late summer and last a long time before they turn a light pink and then fade to tan and eventually brown for the winter. These are great for a full sun landscape and are perfect for the yard owner that likes to admire blooms all year long as they can be staggered with other earlier blooming plants. This shrub is also good for the yard owner that wants a Hydrangea tree as the base can be pruned and trained to make a tree.

The Pee Gee Hydrangea, which is native to China and Japan, is the most common of the hydrangeas found in yards and gardens. This hydrangea is a shrub that can also be grown to look like a tree with the appropriate 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 particular 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 a plush 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.


This plant can handle different soil pH, as long as it well cares for such as feeding, watering and has fertile soils, it will be fine. It is best planted somewhere with plenty of shade, as long as it can get some morning sunshine you’re golden. Take care when purchasing due to its toxicity when ingested. You can do that by selecting the straightest stem in the spring, prune away the other stems (which you will continue yearly), and add support to the chosen stem.

It has a large bloom that can be used in floral arrangements, brought indoors and used as a fragrance on a table or mixed with other flowers to create an elegant masterpiece. The ideas with this plant and its blooms are endless.
