Hydrangea Paniculata ‘Pinky Winky’
What a statement! Massive 12-16″ flowers are upright on 6-8′ plants – never droopy. Blooms are produced all season, the newest being white; the older ones deep pink; giving a delightful display of pink, white, and near red on a dense foliage shrub. Paniculatas are the most cold hardy-a native of Asia. Stiff upright branches never get floppy. Flowers are more cone-shaped than ball-like. Can be pruned at anytime except when they are forming flower heads in the summer. Can also be shaped into a tree form.
They like a sunny/semi-shade position and flower from July to September. They grow to 200-250cm height and should be pruned in March.
They are deciduous but hardy to 25 degrees C.
