Help Me Chose a Paniculata
From what I can tell from researching Hydgrangeas, Paniculata seems to thrive better in full sun and drier soils than other Hydrangeas.
With that said, that is my main critera. Exposed to winds and full sun.
Also, it will be a speciman, so shape and habit are important as it will be readily viewed 360 degrees.
Which one do I chose!
The only one I own is Quickfire, which is my favorite shrub in my yard. Began blooming in late June and the flowers have just reached their peak of a rich deep pink...so that puts the flowers at 9 weeks, still going strong. Its nice and full, with plenty of stems and the foilage remains strong in full sun and no wind protection.
I seen a few mature Tarvida's, maybe Unique's and I think they are absolutely stunning. Surprised I don't see more of them.
