‘Fire Light Tidbit’ is a pretty, tiny hydrangea, smaller than Bobo, with fantastic coloration, good for containers as well as for planting! Late-season mophead blooms open a bright lime green, transition to white, and quickly take on hues of dragon fruit pink. Stems are sturdy, so blossoms stay upright. Leaves turn an orange-red in the fall, shades not commonly found on a panicle hydrangea.
Hydrangea paniculatas as a group are upright, multi-stemmed, fast-growing shrubs with semi-arching, spreading branches and dark green leaves. Flower panicles are shaped like the frosty swirl atop an ice cream cone. Flowers contain both fertile and sterile florets. One of the most winter hardy of the hydrangeas. Blooms on new wood, so prune in spring if desired (but not necessary). Flower color is unaffected by soil chemistry.
