An exciting new compact panicle hydrangea introduction, Little Hottie™ has very full flower heads with florets that emerge green and turn sparkling white. This well-branched, compact panicle hydrangea is covered in large blooms from the bottom to the top of the plant and holds tight flower clusters out on strong stems. Bred in Georgia for heat tolerance, Little Hottie® performs equally well in Minnesota; flowers don't get heat-stressed or turn brown in excessive heat. With natural basal branching, this new introduction doesn't need much pruning in production or the landscape to grow into a well-shaped plant with strong stems. Fall color is soft pink.
Plant in full sun to part shade. Average water and prune as needed in early spring. Doesn't need a lot of pruning in production or the landscape to grow into a well-shaped plant with strong stems.
