Genus:  Hydrangea
Large, sometimes giant white flower heads reaching 6 to 18 inches long turn pinkish with age. 'Grandiflora' is a fast-growing shrub that can reach 25 feet tall.  Hydrangea paniculata  is one of the most cold-hardy species. It may be grown as a single-stemmed tree specimen or as a multi-stemmed shrub. 
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Flowers are good for cutting and drying. These shrubs may be used for hedging.
Care:  Grow in moist, but well-drained soil, in sun to partial shade. Blooms on current season's wood; may be cut back to a few buds to form a framework in spring to produce larger flowers, or alternately, allow 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.
