Hydrangea pan. ‘Pinky Winky®’
*A PROVEN WINNERS® TOP SELLER*
Common Name: Panicle hydrangea, ‘Pinky Winky’
Panicle hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata) is a rapid-growing, upright, and somewhat coarsely textured, deciduous shrub. This is one of the most winter hardy of the hydrangeas and thrives in urban conditions. Bloom occurs on current season’s growth from mid summer into fall. In full bloom, the weight of the flower panicles will typically cause the branches to arch downward.
Now, prepare yourself for huge two-toned blooms with this variety from Proven Winners®!
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, and the result is extra-large and spectacular two-toned panicles that will stun you through fall! This is a real show-stopper that's also very easy to grow in most gardens.
Size: 4" Potted Plant (1 quart)
Flower Description: Large flowers emerge in mid to late summer as panicles (upright and broad cone-like structures) that contain both fertile and sterile white florets, but 'Pinky Winky®’ produces mostly the showy sterile ones. Throughout the summer, the older, lower florets change to a delicate pink, while the growing tip of the panicle will continue to produce new white florets. These two-tone panicles can reach lengths of 16”. Panicles may be cut for fresh arrangements or for drying.
