Hydrangea paniculata 'Pinky Winky'


Hydrangea paniculata 'Pinky Winky' (Hydrangea paniculata (Hydrangea))

I've wanted a white Hydrangea for ages - and found this one today. I have to dig out lots of 'anonymous pink geraniums' which have spread too far before I can plant it.

Yes, really! They also had one which was going to open pale green... I dithered about, then decided that it had to be this one!

It'll look good in that spot Spritz :)

It does seem odd (as Ian said) that it's name indicates a different colour !

I suspect that they couldn't call it after that Teletubbie, so they dreamed up this daft name! It doesn't have a speck of pink in it - unless the flowers alter later?

Some Hydrangea flowers do fade to pink, don't they. Trust me to choos the only one with no plant label!

~it's a lovely specimen plant whatever i'ts name.I have a similar one but it seems bent on growing sideways rather than up.Maybe it needs turning 90 degrees!

Don't tell me, Ian, tell the person who named it! LOL.

The question is, do you like it...cos I do! I'm really not bothered by its silly name...;-)

I am NOT looking forward to digging out the pink geraniums, they have such matted roots and do NOT want to be dug out at all! They resist...

But its Wh............Its beautiful Barbara. Very nice. :~))

Simply gorgeous, your plants are lovely as ever!
Maine, MA is full of Pinky Winky hydrangeas, everywhere you go, I thought they were buddleias at first because of their pointy heads...

I wish I still had this to look at - it died in the harsh winter. :-( I really must try another one - I'd forgotten how lovely it was!
