Hydrangea Paniculata Pinky Winky Hedging
Hydrangea paniculata Pinky Winky
A magnificent paniculata variety, in late summer the large conical flowerheads appear made up of many attractive star shaped flowers that open creamy white and gradually darken to pink giving a wonderful two tone effect. These are easy to grow, tough plants and Pinky Winky has a bushy and compact habit growing to just 1.5 metres tall it is more compact than many of the older types. A great shrub to take pride of place in a shrub bed giving colour when many plants are past their best, or as a stunning informal flowering hedge.
Hydrangea Pinky Winky is easy to grow in sun or partial shade, they prefer a rich moisture retaining soil that doesnt dry out too much in Summer, thinnner and lighter soils would benefit from a good amount of organic matter being well mixed in the hole at planting time and these glorious shrubs enjoy a good mulch being applied during Spring to get the best from them, this is especially the case for younger plants. Prune the plants back hard to a low framework in Early Spring for best flowering and remove any weak or crossing stems at the same time. We recommend adding Rootgrow when planting all Hydrangeas to give them the best start.
