Hydrangea Paniculata (Panicle Hydrangea) 'pinky winky' Gardeners everywhere love this plant because of the large pink and white flowers that can get up to 16 inches in length! The panicle shaped flowers start off white, then turn pink later on. As the flowers turn pink, new growth that is white creates a two-toned flower, that is very pretty. This shrub can grow up to 8 feet tall, which is covered in flowers from early summer to late fall! These are great statement pieces in the landscape, and can also make a very beautiful hedge. The dark green foliage also looks great next to the white and pink flowers. This bush is very easy to grow, can adapt to many different soil conditions and is drought tolerant. Pruning the Pinky Winky Hydrangea is not required, but if you do decide to trim, do so in late winter or early spring. You can even train this shrub to grow into a tree form by simple pruning. Since this shrub blooms on new wood, you do not have to worry about cutting off the flower buds for next year’s flowers. Fertilizing should be done in early spring with a controlled release fertilizer such as HollyTone or RoseTone. 3 gal
