These plants were two feet when I bought them and without and blooms. Beautiful flowers emerged mid-summer and the blooms were huge! The only problem was the plant did not seem to grown and the stems were weighed down by these massive blooms. Hopefully they will perform better this summer or I will have to remove them. I don't want a floppy hydrangea.
- Part Sun to Sun
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
This plant is hardy in zones 3 - 8
Zones are based on the lowest average temperature an area is expected to receive during the winter. They are used to determine whether a plant is likely to be perennial in your area. If your zone is equal to or higher than the zone listed for the plant, it will be hardy for you and thrive in your climate.
My Current Zone
Pink and white two-toned blooms!
A beautiful new hardy hydrangea with loads of bodacious blooms that emerge pure white and then turn bright pink from the bottom up. Flowers eventually age to a dark pink-red, and stay colorful for months. It looks a bit like classic Pinky Winky hydrangea, but with full, mophead flowers, and it blooms much earlier, too. Strong stems hold the flowers upright in the garden, and make it an excellent cut flower, too.

Fall InterestHeat Tolerant
- Large, colorful mophead blooms appear earlier in summer than other varieties
- Blooms every year, no matter how harsh winter was
- Provides 3+ months of flowers

Panicle hydrangeas are super easy and reliable. In cold climates, they should get a minimum of six hours of sun each day; in hot areas, morning sun and afternoon shade are best. These are shallow-rooted plants that really benefit from a 2-3" (5-7.6 cm) layer of mulch.
As for pruning, plan to cut these plants back by about one-third in early spring. This builds up a strong base while encouraging vigorous new growth to produce lots of blooms.Zinfin Doll® Hydrangea paniculata 'SMNHPRZEP' USPP 26,956, Can 5,721
