Please remember.... hydrangeas take a while to get themselves sorted out... First year, they sleep - second year, they creep, third year they leap - and are fabulous. This has been my experience with all hydrangeas. Give them time and don't give up on them - they will perform once they get situated Make sure you prune appropriately so that your stalks have a chance to become strong and thick enough to hold up the blooms. Patience is a virtue and these won't disappoint.
Zinfin Doll® Panicle hydrangea Hydrangea paniculata
- 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).
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.
Top three reasons to grow Zinfin Doll panicle hydrangea:
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

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.Farah, Ontario, Canada, 42 weeks ago
