Russian Almond vs Dragon Baby™ Hydrangea

Prunus tenella

Hydrangea paniculata HYLV17522

Russian Almond
Dragon Baby™ Hydrangea

Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets attracts wildlife. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. They are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

Dragon Baby™ Hydrangea is a dwarf panicle hydrangea with flowers that start as lime green and transition to a rich pink towards the fall. During the summer the leaves are a deep green and turn a golden yellow with a red to purple tint. Persistent blooms and fall colors add multi season interest to your landscape. The petite form is well suited for urban yards and tight spaces.

Flowers grow on new wood so pruning is best done in late winter or early spring. The Dragon Baby Hydrangea is part of the Bloomin’ Easy® collection.
