The Proven Winners® Pinky Winky® Hydrangea is a best seller. 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.
Pinky Winky Hydrangea Care
This hydrangea paniculata should be planted in well drained soil, but the plant can adapt to many other conditions. Moderate moisture is required for this bush, however, once it is established, it is drought tolerant. The Pink Winky can be planted in partial sun to full sun locations. 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 commonly found at most stores. The fertilizer should be designed for woody plants, such as roses or trees.
Pinky Winky Hydrangea Spacing
The Pinky Winky should be planted 6 to 8 feet apart, center on center. If you choose to grow these into a hedge, you can plant 5 to 6 feet apart, center on center. If you prune these as trees, you should still plant 6 to 8 feet apart, as the root systems will still need room to grow. These are also great in garden planters, even as a tree form, as a statement piece!
