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.
