Days to Maturity: Paniculata hydrangeas are relatively fast-growing plants. They typically reach maturity and start blooming within 2 to 3 years after planting, depending on the specific variety and growing conditions.

Sun Preference: Paniculata hydrangeas prefer full sun to partial shade. They thrive in locations where they receive at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight per day but can also tolerate some shade, especially in hotter climates where protection from intense afternoon sun may be beneficial.

Appearance: have a distinctive appearance characterized by their large, elongated flower clusters that resemble football shapes. These blooms typically start out white and transition to shades of pink, red, or even green as the season progresses. The exact color transformation depends on the specific variety of the plant and environmental factors such as moisture levels and nighttime temperatures.

Harvesting : Harvest when most of the flowers are open

Pruning: Paniculata hydrangeas can be pruned in late winter or early spring to remove dead or damaged branches and promote new growth. They are often pruned into a more compact shape to maintain their size and appearance.
