Hydrangea - PeeGee
The Grandiflora Hydrangea, Hydrangea paniculata, is a common American garden plant and highly valued for its vigor and bloom dependability. Sterile flowers appear in August and remain on the plant until the first hard frost.
The large conical shaped white flower heads turn to pink in the fall with gray-green leaves. Sent to America from Japan in 1861, this continues to be one of the best loved varieties.
The Pee Gee can be pruned at any time except when they begin to form bloom heads in the summer. The color of blooms on a PeeGee changes during its bloom period. Beginning as a white flower, the blooms age to pink, and finally a rusty brown in autumn.
The blooms can easily be used for drying. This plant can reach 6+ foot in height at maturity. PeeGee hydrangeas blooms do not change with the pH level of the soil.
Use this plant as a border, cut flower, dried flower, specimen plant, or if trained, as a flowering tree.
