Finally, a Pee Gee Hydrangea for a small garden space! Hydrangea paniculata 'Dharuma's flowers come very early in summer, and rapidly turn from white to rose. Like the plant, the flowers are smaller than other varieties of H. paniculata, and somewhat open. We like it because even the young branches are strong enough to support the flowers, so they are upright and visible, not floppy. when in bloom. The RHS's recent trials put this as a hybrid between H. paniculata and H. heteromala.
