Hydrangea Pinky Winky® Panicle Hydrangea



Extra-large blooms held high on strong red stems

Enormous pink and white blooms appear reliably each year regardless of climate, pruning, or soil pH

Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit 2008

A Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs variety, Pinky Winky™ Panicle Hydrangea is an exceptional cold-hardy shrub bearing whopping two-toned white and pink flowers. The 12- to 16-inch-long flower heads emerge white, deepening to pink as they age, giving it a pink to white gradient effect from the bottom up.

The blooms continue to grow as the season progresses and are held aloft on strong, striking red stems with no drooping. Pinky Winky hydrangea blooms in midsummer, earlier than other paniculatas, which delay their blooms until late summer or even early fall; but its flowers remain striking well into cool weather. Best of all, it blooms reliably and with rich pink color regardless of cold temperatures, soil pH, or pruning.

Included in a mixed perennial border, Pinky Winky complements other colors beautifully, but planted as a hedge or large grouping, it's absolutely magnificent! It can be easily maintained as a more compact plant through pruning or training into a tree form or allow it to spread out in full glory to an impressive 8 feet tall and wide. Provide part shade in the South to protect from unyielding afternoon sun.
