Comments: A large shrub, with long branches, each bearing big panicles of creamy-white flowers, becoming pinkish-red as they age. This cultivar probably has the largest inflorescence of all. Some have measured 12' in heigth and 26" in circumference. It is not as floriferous as most other Hydrangea paniculatas. Requires sunny position and moist soil. Prune hard and fertilize in spring. Can grow to 20 feet tall when mature and not severly pruned.
