Plant Information

8-15' tall x 6-12' wide. Hydrangea Fire and Ice is a parade of color. Cold hardy and easy care, its creamy white flowers appear in early spring, contrasting nicely against the bright green foliage. By mid-summer, the flowers are a soft pink, and they continue to deepen to a burgundy red by fall. A lovely focal point or border plant, it grows well with Viburnum, Coral Bells, Hosta, Dogwood and Lenten Rose. Plant in a full shade to partial sun location in compost-enriched, well-drained soil. Mulch to preserve soil moisture and protect in harsh winters. Water regularly. Prune old or damaged shoots in spring as the new growth appears.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
