Hydrangea Panicle Pinky Winky®

Hydrangea  hy-DRAYN-juh

Proven Winners Panicle Pinky Winky®:

Pinky Winky has an unusual name and an even more unusual flower. The large white panicles open in mid to late summer and as summer turns to fall the florets at the base of the panicles turn pink. The flower panicles continue to grow, producing new white florets at the tip. The result is spectacular two-toned flower panicles that can reach up to 16 inches in length! This is a real show-stopper that’s also very easy to grow. Adaptable to most soils and both sun and shade, Pinky Winky will thrive in most gardens.

Description

Hydrangea  hy-DRAYN-juh

Hydrangeas are a genus of over 75 species and 600 named cultivars that are native to a wide range of regions and countries including Japan, Asia, Indonesia, Himalayan mountains and the Americas. Hydrangeas can grow as climbing vines and trees but are most commonly grown as a shrub. The beautiful flowers produced by this plant is what makes these so popular. Most put on a showy display from early spring all the way into fall. The large flowers come in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes.

Many people remember hydrangea shrubs from their childhood. Today we are falling in love with them all over again and the good news is that we can now grow many hydrangea varieties our grandmothers never even dreamed of. Some newer hydrangeas grow in colder climates, some are so small they will fit into the perennial border and others have amazingly large blooms and deep colors.
