Ruby-red Wow!


This Pinkie Winkie Hydrangea is a beauty for all seasons.

Summer 2012
Fall 2012
In the spring it's creamy white with pink-blushed tips.
Now, it's a ruby-red WOW!


There is one last colour transformation to come...

  5. I love pinkie winkie, but do not have it myself. It reminds me of vanilla icecream cones drizzled with raspberry juice.

    1. Rosemary, that is the perfect description! This hydrangea is new to my garden and I am loving the way it looks. I have just purchased two more, a sure sign for something to go wrong with it next year, now that I will have three :)

    1. This particular bush stands all by itself, while two others I have are surrounded by tall flowers. I've noticed that this stand-alone one is the brightest red while the others are more maroon. I wonder if this plays a role in the fall colour.
