It is truly amazing how a combination of white and pink colour can still bring something new. Panical hydrangea is what I am talking about. These easy-to-grow flowering shrubs have been available in so many selections and cultivars that some might say 'well, how can you surprise us next?' Truth is that each of the new varieties bring something different, just like this polar beauty called Polar Bear, bred by Arie Jacobus Bregman from the Netherlands in 2010, and protected by PBR in Europe as PBR40834.

Polar Bear panicle hydrangea offers almost snow white flowers composed in large panicles topped with lime green caps. The inflorescence is 20-25 cm long and almost 15 cm wide, and is composed mostly of sterile flowers that open from mid July. In late summer and autumn they turn only a pale shade of pink. Stems are red flushed, and deciduous, ovate leaves are deep green. Polar Bear hydrangea makes an upright, bushy, and compact shrub about 1.5m tall and wide.

Panicle hydrangea will grow in almost any soil type, preferably humus-rich, moist soil that is not too heavy or shallow. Once established it does not need extra watering like big-leaf hydrangeas. Full sun is best but it will grow in shade, too. Feeding is much recommended to enhance flower size. We recommend regular pruning every spring before the buds begin to swell. By cutting at least two thirds of previous year’s growth you will get a strong shrub with large flowers and a regular shape. It is hardy to at least -34°C (USDA zone 4).
