An exciting new compact panicle hydrangea, Little Hottie® has very full flower heads with florets that emerge green and turn sparkling white. This well-branched, compact selection 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. It delivers beauty into the fall as color ages to soft pink.
