Hydrangea Pinky Winky #3

Pinky Winky is one formidable panicle hydrangea! Big, robust, and practically impervious to damage from wind and weather, its thick stems are practically like rebar. But don't let its muscular framework deter you - it has a delicate side in its huge (12"+) cone-shaped lacecap flowers. These start out pure white but soon develop a deep, dark pink tone at the bottom, which slowly transitions toward the top, creating an ombré or ice cream cone effect. If you're looking for a hydrangea that can really stand up to what nature dishes out, and look fabulous while doing it, Pinky Winky ought to be at the top of your list.

What makes Pinky Winky different than other panicle hydrangeas?
- Thick, rigid stems hold up to wind and rain
- Very large lacecap blooms develop a beautiful pink shade in a unique pattern
