If you’ve always wanted a hydrangea in your garden but didn’t have enough room for it, you’re in luck! You’ve found the smallest, tidiest hydrangea variety yet! Fire Light Tidbit Panicle Hydrangea is the smallest panicle hydrangea ever —it grows to a maximum of 3’ tall. But it’s certainly not short on the beautiful mophead flowers that we adore. Fire Light Tidbit is covered in dozens of big blooms all summer long. The flowers even change color as they age! The initial blooms burst forth mid-season in white and then slowly move through tones of pink, until they reach a deep red at the end of their bloom.

The small stature and mounded growth habit of Fire Light Tidbit makes it an extremely versatile shrub. It looks at home in a flower garden, foundation plantings, as a specimen plant, in mass plantings, borders, and even as a short hedge. These mophead hydrangea flowers are lovely as cut and dried flowers. You can even plant it in a large container for up-close color year after year.

Fire Light Tidbit® Hydrangea Care

Panicle Hydrangeas aren’t picky about the pH of their soil, but they do require good drainage. Plant it in your native soil with a well-balanced fertilizer application. Avoid amending the soil in order to avoid a bathtub effect around the root ball. Fertilize in early spring with a granular rose fertilizer just as the soil begins to thaw. Fertilizing monthly is not necessary, but an additional application in late July will encourage more rapid growth.

Prune in late fall after the shrub has gone completely dormant, or in late winter or early spring. Cut back the main branches by one-third for best results from your prune.

Fire Light Tidbit® Hydrangea Spacing

Fire Light Tidbit might be the smallest panicle hydrangea, but it still requires 3’ of space from other plants. Give it space to bloom and grow and you’ll be rewarded with abundant blooms in the summer.

    I ordered two tid bits. One is doing great, the other is not looking so good. I think it needs another week to see if it’s going to settle in.

    I ordered four and they arrived in sturdy packaging but on opening one was badly broken. Three out of four branches were snapped off. The other three are doing well and I am very pleased with them. I am still trying to nurse number four back to health.
