Hydrangea Paniculata Wims Red Hedging
Hydrangea paniculata Wims Red
An eye catching new variety, Wims Red has large (up to 30cm) conical flowerheads borne on strong upright stems that dont flop in wet weather. The honey scented flowers open white becoming pink flushed as they mature and then finally intensifying to a deep, rich wine red. This plant is something of a chameleon, ever changing through late summer and ideal as a focal point or a show stopping informal flowering hedge.
Hydrangea Wims Red 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.
