Colorful, Show-Stopping, Full Blooms For Every Type of Landscape

These flowers live up to their name. The deliciously named Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea produces incredible, bright white, pink and deep red blooms. Like a whipped-cream topped strawberry shortcake, these flowers are irresistible to look at. You'll find yourself (and your neighbors) staring at the gorgeous blooms that appear year after year.

The flowers bloom throughout the warm months. The blooms begin as a creamy white and then turn to an irresistible pink and finally a deep red to burgundy. Since the flowers bloom throughout the Spring and Summer, you'll get all 3 colors on the plant at the same time. 

Even in winter, these flowers bring visual interest to your yard.  As the cooler months set it, the blooms turn an interesting parchment color. The stems can vary in color and sometimes present a bright red, making a unique contrast against the flowers. After the mesmerizing spring and summer, you'll be impressed by how the Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea still adds even more visual appeal to your landscape in the winter.

Pollinators love the bright colors of the Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea. If you want to attract butterflies, hummingbirds and beneficial bees to your yard, then this plant is the way to go. You'll love watching all the precious pollinators dance around the brightly colored blooms in the spring and summer. 

Forget about maintenance; just enjoy the flowers. The Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea isn't finicky, so you don't have to worry about annoying upkeep. This plant simply wants to soak up the sun and show off its stunning beauty. Pruning is totally up to you with this tall growing hydrangea.

This is the most winter hardy hydrangea. The flowers bloom on each season's new growth, so frost won't hurt this durable plant. You don't need to be jealous of warmer states' bright summer blooms. The Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea won't flourish below Zone 8, so colder states up to Zone 4 get all the benefits of this beauty.

Brighten up your yard or your floral arrangements with the sweet strawberry blooms. Growing to 6' to 8', the Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea makes the perfect companion to small and large plants alike. You can add interest and contrast to any space in your yard. The blooms stay fresh for a while after cutting, so they make wonderful additions to your floral arrangements or home décor.

This is an extremely popular plant. People love buying multiples of these plants and creating beautiful hedges. Because they are so tolerant, gorgeous and easy to care for, they sell quickly. Don't miss your opportunity to add incredible visual appeal to your landscape. Order several today.

Bought one of these with the Endless Summer Hydrangeas circling it. Received it in Sept 2018 so limited growing time, but it did grow and at this moment in 3rd week of Oct. it has a white bloom and a pink one that just came out in the last 3 days. I am so happy with FGT for their healthy plants and trees and love their protective packaging.

What a recovery!!!
We received our hydrangea on one of the hottest days on the Front Range in CO. It arrived very well packaged but thoroughly wilted. I placed the plant in the shade and watered it, not expecting much. The next day it had recovered quite well but I waited to plant it in cooler weather, which came several days later.
Since the planting, it has lost all the bottom leaves, but there is new growth all around. I’m looking forward to seeing it grow into a beautiful shrub.
Thank you

So different
I am so happy with this hydrangea. I put it in a 7 gal pot, and it is a happy camper. This should be a beauty. Not the ordinary hydrangea we normally see.

I recommend this as an excellent purchase. Jan

Slow growing
I purchased two plants. Both have been very slow to grow and barely have foliage. Needless to say, there are no blooms.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea

Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea Planting Diretions

Planting Instructions: If you live in a colder state, plant your Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea in full sun. If you live in a warmer state, plant your Hydrangea in a place that will get some afternoon shade. Make sure your soil is moist and well drained. Amend the soil with some compost and 15-30-15 fertilizer. Plant in a hole big enough to give the root ball some room to grow. Place a layer of mulch around the edge of the trunk, covering the ground to the edge of the canopy.


Watering: Water your Hydrangea weekly for the first 6 months. After this time, you will only need to water your plant when you get less than 1" of rain during the week. The mulch should keep the soil moist. Never let your soil dry out completely. It make take some time to see blooms on your plant, but once you do, they will multiply rapidly.


Fertilization: You can fertilize the plant every spring with a bloom encouraging fertilizer. Fertilizing too much will cause the tree to produce more leaves and less blooms, so be careful to only add a little bit each year.


Pruning: You do not need to prune your Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea, but you can if you like. Only prune in late winter or early spring after the worst frost is over. You can prune to the shape you desire.
