I usually push the zones and so have a Quickfire in my zone 4 garden, under some lilacs. It receives morning sun and the rest of the day is shaded. I have had it two years and am thrilled with the flowering capacity! Its beautiful and in the time I have had it , it went from a small one foot "stick" to a full bush of about 3.5 x 3 feet. I only wish I had more! I am going to post a photo.

I think this is my favorite hydrangea. I planted it last fall, and it has grown and bloomed wonderfully all summer. The flowers start out as bright white and then start to change to pink. As the summer goes on, the pink slowly gets darker. The blooms are lacy and plentiful, and I also really like the reddish stems. This is just a really attractive flowering shrub.

received 'Quickfire' as a tiny baby, BEFORE it was commercially available. This will be the first year with any significant blooms - can't wait!
edited to add: as you might guess from all my photos, I'm loving the nearly brick-pink color these panicles are developing!
