Can someone help me determine approximately what height (& width) a standard form (tree form) Hydrangea paniculate "Vanilla Strawberry" will attain when mature? Or a standard/tree form "Quick Fire"? I am see everything from 6-8' tall to 20-25' tall. I really need some clarity to make the right choice.

Thank you, Frank. I'm most concerned with how tall a tree form of one of these paniculata hybrids will grow. Can anyone help me with that? Thank you.

I just purchased quick fire, it's a dwarf

Hydrangea paniculata Little Quick Fire® 'SMHPLQF' (PP25136, 2014) was developed by Timothy D. Wood of Michigan. An open-pollination of Hydrangea paniculata 'Bulk' as the seed parent. As the name implies, it's a dwarf variety ( 3-5 feet tall). It blooms about one month before other hydrangeas. White flowers turn pink as summer progresses. Blooms on new wood. Flower color is not affected by soil pH. A Proven Winners® selection. Paniculata hydrangeas are the most cold hardy (Zone 3-8). Native to Asia. Stiff upright branches do not splay. Flowers are more cone-shaped rather than ball-shaped.

This (VS) is still a relatively new variety so take estimates with a grain of salt. See the link below.

@jtrema - I have Quick Fire and when it gets too tall and blocks my view of dahlias, I just cut it back to about 3'.
