Hydrangea paniculata 'Pinky Winky' is a panicle hydrangea. The flowers of this panicle hydrangea are pointed and stand on sturdy, dark red, woody stems. The panicle consists of many fertile flowers in the center of the panicle, surrounded by slightly larger infertile flowers that attract insects for pollination. The flower panicles turn from white to dark pink. The color of the flowers of the hydrangea Pinky Winky can safely be called spectacular. When Pinky Winky gets a spot in the sun, the plant will bloom and color at its most beautiful. This hydrangea has not been on the market for very long, but is already highly recommended!
Hydrangeas do not like drought and need a lot of water, especially in the summer. It is best to give the hydrangea a large amount of water all at once rather than a little every now and then. It can be planted from March to mid-October, either in the open ground or in an ornamental pot, although it grows best in the open ground. When planting, keep a distance of 75cm between plants. Pruning the plant is best done in March, about 30cm above the ground. The harder you prune back the hydrangea, the larger the flowers will grow.
Upon delivery, the plants have a height of 25 to 40cm (measured incl. pot). The plants are delivered in pots with a diameter of 19cm.
