The large white cone-shaped flowers of the Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea transition throughout the bloom cycle. Flowers start white and develop a light pink hue at the base before turning a rich, deep pink that eventually envelopes the entire flower cluster. The plant continues to push out blooms throughout July and August, so the flowers will be in various stages of the color transition, giving the Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea an eye-catching appearance. The large flowers are supported on red stems and surrounded by glossy light green foliage.

Hydrangeas have an upright growth habit and require very little attention once established. Use this fast-growing shrub in beds, borders, or as a specimen planting. The striking blooms make for excellent cut or dried flowers. The Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea grows as a perennial in USDA zones 4 through 8.

Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea Care

Plant the Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea in moist, well-draining soil. This plant has average water needs, but it does not like wet feet. Soil should have high organic content and 6.0 to 6.2 pH. This beauty needs full to part sun, so find a spot that receives at least 4 to 6 hours of light. Apply a water-soluble fertilizer every few weeks or a slow-release fertilizer every few months. Use a fertilizer with high levels of phosphorus.

Spent blooms can be removed or left in place while the plant overwinters. Trim back dead growth and shape the plant during the late fall or winter. Flowers grow on new wood, so prune the plant well before new growth emerges to ensure the plant will bloom. Wrap or cover Hydrangeas in areas that have cold winter weather or increased snowfall.

Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea Spacing

The Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea can grow 6 to 8 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide. The plant may not reach its full size until the second or third year after it has had time to settle in. Plant 4 feet apart from other Hydrangea plants to create a dense continuous planting or space further if you want to leave some blank areas around the plant.

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.
