Fire Light® Hydrangea is a large hydrangea shrub that you can grow up to zone 3! This plant is extremely durable and hardy, perfect for people who do not have time for a lot of maintenance or that just can’t seem to keep plants alive! The shrubs gets up to 6 feet tall, and produces large creamy white flowers that change to vivid red towards the end of the season.

This plant was bred to have really strong stems, perfect to hold up the enormous flowers this shrub produces. These bushes make for great beautiful hedges, mass plantings, or as a tall thriller in garden planters! The strong stems are great for cut flowers to dry or use in vases and bouquets as well. These are also great for foundational plantings in the garden.

Fire Light Hydrangea Care

This shrub is extremely hardy, and can be grown up to zone 3a. Prune Fire Light Hydrangeas in late fall or early spring. These plants grow flowers on new growth. When you do prune, cut back no longer than a ⅓ of the total length of the branch.

Plant these in full sun for best performance, however it is best to provide some shade in the afternoon if possible in warmer climates. The soil should be well-drained to prevent root rot. We also recommend using 2 to 3 inches of mulch around the base of the shrub to help retain moisture and to provide extra protection during the winter.

Fertilize Fire Light Hydrangeas in early spring using granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.

Fire Light Hydrangea Spacing

When planting, space the Fire Light Hydrangea 54 - 72 inches apart, center on center. To create a hydrangea hedge, plant these 48 to 60 inches apart center on center. If you choose to use these in garden pots, only use 1 plant per container, as a tall background that really likes to show off.

    Posted by Beverly Kelvie on Sep 29th 2021

    The Fire Light Hydrangea arrived in bad shape. After I sent pictures to you of how they looked, I planted them to see if they might recover. As I was planting them I noticed that the had been recently potted and the roots were not fully melded to the soil. That might be a reason they were fragile.
    I am anxious to receive the new plants and see them bloom in the Spring
    Thank you for your efforts.

    The plants came in great shape with instructions inside to plant immediately, followed the directions and the plants have been doing just fine where I planted them. No leaf loss, no problems. :)

    I love that my Fire Light Hydrangea arrived healthy. My only disappointment was that it is so small. Shipping cost was very high and the sad state of things with the Corona Virus made the delay long. I did have a very timely response from Richard about the potential arrival time. Thank you!

    Received this plant in a qt sized container and was surprised at how healthy looking it was. We threw it in the ground the next day and is doing great. No shock. Its starting to put new growth on in the week we’ve had it. I will order from these folks again. Great product-exactly as advertised

    The 4 hydrangeas I ordered arrived well packed and very healthy. They were smaller than I expected and I’m not sure if I will see any flowers this first year. But , I am hoping for the best. They have been planted for 2 weeks and are doing well. ( 2 Fire Light and 2 Incredaball )
