‘Phantom’ HydrangeaHydrangea arborescens 6-8' x same. Introduced by Pieter Zwinenburg, Netherlands, 1990.
We aren’t sure why this charming sister seedling of Limelight was given such an eerie name—perhaps it’s the massive looming white blossoms, among the largest of the paniculatas.
Gigantic 15"-long conical inflorescences bloom mid-July and persist through September. Panicles consist of small understated white fertile flowers and showy sterile ones all gradually turning pink as temperatures cool. Long-lasting cutflower. Very sturdy stems do not flop with the weight of the flowers like other paniculatas.
Blooms on new wood, so shape to your desired size with annual pruning in winter or very early spring. Needs plenty of space. Unlike other popular hydrangeas, this one is plenty hardy in northern New England. Z3. (1-3' bare-root plants)
