Plant of the Week for September 24th 2019
Fire Light Hydrangea is a sun loving hydrangea that blooms white in July. Then they age over summer to a vibrant “red” pictured above. Fire Light grows to about 6 to 8 feet tall and wide making it a large shrub. A plant like this can be used as a colorful privacy block or as a focal point with perennials and smaller shrubs in front. It would go nicely along a fence lined up with a window that is part of the main living space like great room or kitchen. Where it can be seen and enjoyed through it’s long show season. After the flowers have faded, remove them and to keep size in check prune back harder in early spring. They can handle all day sun to as little as 4 hours of direct sunlight.
