The panicle hydrangea, Hydrangea paniculata, bears broad flower cones rather than rounded heads like mophead or lacecap hydrangeas. Most cultivars flower from late summer to autumn. They are less sensitive to the pH of the soil than many hydrangeas, but benefit from growing in moist but well-drained, fertile soil.
Hydrangea paniculata ‘Brussels Lace’ is a dwarf panicle hydrangea, bearing cone-shaped blooms with small lacy flowers in creamy white, from July until the first frosts. Foliage is dark green.
