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.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
