Show-Stopping Pink-Cream Blooms in One
Why Vanilla Strawberry ™ Hydrangea Shrubs?
These flowers live up to their name. The deliciously named Vanilla Strawberry™ Hydrangea produces incredible white, pink and deep red blooms. Like a strawberry shortcake, these flowers are irresistible. You (and your neighbors) will stare 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, finally transitioning to a deep red and burgundy. And since the flowers bloom throughout the spring and summer, you'll get all three hues at the same time.
Even in winter, the Vanilla Strawberry ™ brings 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.
And 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. And it's one of the hardiest hydrangeas available. This plant simply wants to soak up the sun and show off its stunning beauty - no pruning, no fertilizing, and no guesswork required.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: If you live in a colder state, plant your Vanilla Strawberry™ Hydrangea in full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight). If you live in a warmer state, plant your Hydrangea in an area that will get some afternoon shade. Other than that, make sure your soil is moist and well-drained.
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.
2. Watering: Water your Hydrangea weekly for the first six months. After that, rainfall will nourish your Vanilla Strawberry™. If you get less than 1 inch of rainfall every week or two, simply give your shrub a bit of extra water.
3. Fertilizing: You can feed the plant every spring with a bloom-encouraging fertilizer.
4. 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 threat of frost has passed.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Blooming Beauty Hydrangea
I received my vanilla and strawberry hydrangea in May. It was a beautiful plant artfully packaged. I planted it right away and even though the deer got to it before I covered it, this healthy plant bounced back and gave us two gorgeous, big blooms (see picture) in a short month and a half! Great product! Great company! I highly recommend Fast Growing Trees.
I ordered the 3-gallon shrubs. They shipped soon after I ordered them, and I received them within a week. They were delivered very healthy. I planted them about five weeks ago and I’m already starting to get blooms. These shrubs are very high-quality. I live in Texas (zone 8), and I’m hoping the evenings will get cool enough so they turn pink in the fall.
the color of hydrangeas is vary significantly regardless of the cultivars initial color this plant could easily produce blue flowers if i wanted. give this plant the exact conditions called for to produce this color and u can expect to get that exact color. just regular old miracle grow (not a huge fan because i like to control my nutrient levels naturally but for the people complaining it will produce the pink they want.. if u add iron or have high iron levels in your soil you are like to get bluish to purple colored flowers mix that with pink and ull likely something in between like the faded specimen below. many plants will have different colors on the same plant it is just something you should expect with this species. plant this plant in average old miracle grow potting/gardening soil you'll get colors very similar if not exactly like the pictures above but the sun will also affect the color. mine gets very early morning sun and the rest is shade seems to be the best for every cultivar I've seen as far as flowering is concerned overall plant size may suffer slightly but i have neighbors with full son ground planted and huge producing beautiful pink flowers now on the other hand i have a young plant in the same soil but i stuck an old rusted iron nail in it last fall.. 3 blooms currently all different colors one light blue similar to the one below.. to finish this is a beautiful specimen and and will produce the colors it claims people sometimes do too much and hydrangeas thrive on neglect. let it do its thing but if ur not getting the color u want consider changing the soil.
