Hydrangea paniculata 'Little Lamb' was patented by Debelder, Jelena (Essen, BE) and Spring Meadow Nursery of Grand Haven, MI (PP15395, 2004). A Proven Winners® selection. Compared to 'Tardiva': it is a smaller plant (6x6 ft.), has larger and more dense inflorescences with smaller flowers, and blooms earlier. Yellow to purple-tinged fall color. Blooms on new wood. Very Hardy.
