Quick Fire Hydrangeas

This show-stopping, early-blooming hydrangea series fills your landscape with lots of wow.

The Quick Fire series offers a range of useful sizes, from large (Quick Fire Fab® hydrangea) to itty bitty (Tiny Quick Fire® hydrangea), making it easy to include in any garden. You can also bring their large blooms inside – panicle hydrangeas make great cut flowers!

    There’s always that one garden spot we treasure, but nothing seems to do it justice. Until now! Tiny Quick Fire® panicle hydrangea is the plant for the job. It’s the smallest, most prolifically blooming hydrangea imaginable. Easily tucked into just about any spot, you’ll find it looks lovely in groups, in pots, and even as a tiny little edging hedge.
