Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea Is The Sweet Plant To Add To Your Garden

Flowers are pretty and colorful. They make our homes pretty and planting flowers is always a good idea.

Have you ever seen hydrangeas? Vanilla strawberries? These beautiful flowers got their name after their gorgeous colors.

Jean Renault from France introduced the first hydrangeas to the world in 2010. The flowers were cultivated in France. The American Nursery and Landscape Association named it plant of the year.

The beautiful flower got its name because of the way its colors change. It’s white, pink and strawberry pink.

These beautiful flowers grow up to 6-7 feet. It’s 4-5 feet wide and needs plenty of space to grow.

Hydrangeas are easy to grow, and you may want to plant them in autumn and spring.

The flower likes full sun and plenty of water. Plant it in a big hole and use well-drained soil. If the soil is of poor quality, add manure or even compost. Water your plant daily.

This is my dream hydrangea! Vanilla Strawberry hydrangea. It sounds good enough to eat! Isn't it dreamy? 💗🍨🍓🌸 . Vanilla Strawberry (Hydrangea paniculata 'Renhy') is a hybrid of an easy-growing, sun-loving hydrangea species. Vanilla Strawberry was discovered in France and is a relative of the classic PeeGee Hydrangea.

Hydrangeas is cold hardy from USDA hardiness zones 4-8. It thrives well in temperatures down to -30 degrees Fahrenheit. However, some shrubs have a hard time getting through freezing winter days. Overwinter your plants properly.

The gorgeous flower blooms in summer, and changes its colors within several months. Its leaves turn yellow and then fall off.

You can dry the flowers and use them to decorate your living room.

Panicle hydrangea is similar to vanilla strawberry, but it’s smaller. Plant the fire light hydrangea for a more colorful garden.
