The perfect tree-form hydrangea for the smallest of gardens is Fire Light Tidbit®. Despite the shrub’s diminutive size, its blooms are quite large and cover the shrub for weeks. The flowers turn shades of pale lime to soft pink as the season continues, allowing for a colorful display until fall.
Fire Light Tidbit can be used near the border of an existing flower bed, or along a walkway where its small and tidy form can be appreciated close up. Include Fire Light Tidbit in a mixed seasonal planter as the thriller element, adding petunias and English daisies as fillers and spillers. The sturdy stems of Fire Light Tidbit do not need pruning or support to hold the large flowerheads proudly above the dense foliage.
Fire Light Tidbit® Hydrangea Tree Care
This hydrangea tree requires excellent drainage to grow well. Moderately fertile soil that retains moisture will support the heavy flowering of Fire Light Tidbit. Choose a location with full sun to partial shade. Dappled sun or shade during the hottest part of the day also works well, especially in the warmer USDA growing zones of 6-8. Annual fertilizing with a slow-release formula will support healthy growth all season long. Choose a granular fertilizer that has a balanced NPK ratio of 10-10-10.
Prune in late winter before new growth emerges. Remove any dead, diseased, or diagonally crossing branches. This helps keep the canopy as open as possible and encourages good air circulation. Deadheading is rarely necessary for Fire Light Tidbit. This hydrangea tree does not send out sucker shoots, but any branches growing in the open portion of the trunk should be carefully cut off to keep the tree-like shape.
Fire Light Tidbit® Hydrangea Tree Spacing
With such a petite size, Fire Light Tidbit is easily added to a garden bed or planted in a container to dress up a patio or deck. Space other perennials or shrubs 3 feet from the center. Plant Fire Light Tidbit in a container with at least a 16-inch diameter for adding to a container garden or patio.
