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.

This is our 3rd year. Plant growing well and has a lot of blooms this year. My problem: we were sold on the color which is its #1 selling point. Yet to have pink blooms. All we get [which is many people's complaint] is the creamy white that fade to the paper look you get with about all hydrangea's. No where near the color they show on websites or the tag attached to the plant. Now we get excuses from soil to fertilizer to heat. That it's best in cooler climates to get the really pink color. If so then why sell it in hotter climates? BTW we're in Zone 6.

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.
