SKU: 25000000000005630 Category:


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 doesn’t 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.
