Answer: Hydrangea paniculata Tardiva ? This flowering tree form Hydrangea displays super late summer flowers that extend garden color into November. The lacy white flowers are stunning under the autumn moon, and have a slight tint of pink as the season wanes.
This tree-form best used as a specimen plant in the border or opposite sides of an entrance to a garden. It's an excellent as a patio container plant and for cut flowers for arrangements. Hardy to zone 4. It will need full to part sunshine and watering once or twice a week, depending upon weather. You'll want to rub out anything that sprouts along the trunk of your "trees". Aside from the above, it won't need any special care.
It sounds as though you've gotten your lawn area all prepared. The next step is to spread the starter fertilizer and broadcast the seed. Cover it lightly with peat moss to help keep the seedbed moist and to keep birds from feasting on all your seeds. Keep the area moist (water several times a day if necessary) and the seeds should sprout in 7-10 days.
Best wishes with your landscape!
