Panicle hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata)
hy-DRAIN-jah pah-nik-yew-LAY-tah
Genus:  Hydrangea
This plant produces gracefully arching branches and pyramidal clusters of white, then pink-tinged to dusky purple blossoms.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  This is one of the most cold-hardy species. It may be grown as a single-stemmed specimen or as a multi-stemmed shrub. 
Care:  Grow in moist, but well-drained soil, in sun to partial shade. H. paniculata blooms on the current season's wood; it may be cut back to a few buds to form a framework in spring to produce larger flowers, or allowed to grow with minimal pruning.
Propagation:  Sow seed in a cold frame in spring; take softwood cuttings in early summer, hardwood cuttings in winter.
Problems:  Gray mold, slugs, powdery mildew, rust, ringspot virus, leaf spots.
