Penny Mac Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla 'Penny Mac') is a deciduous, ornamental shrub with outstanding blooms! Your Penny Mac is a Bigleaf variety of Hydrangea and you'll be astounded by the large, mophead clusters of delicate florets that adorn your Penny Mac Hydrangea from summer through fall. Each bundle of exquisite blossoms reaches a majestic 7-inches in diameter and will re-bloom repeatedly, blanketing the 8-inch long, dark green foliage in brilliant color.

As the weeks pass, you'll see that the blooms tend to age with a reddish tint for some additional fall color. Penny Mac's foliage transitions to shades of burgundy and purple for a lovely autumn display. Growing 6-8 feet in height and only 3-4 feet in width, these are fantastic upright growing shrubs that are space-saving, yet put on a significant amount of height!

As with other Hydrangeas, blooms will tend to be bluer in acid soils and pink in alkaline soils. However, whatever the color, your Penny Mac Hydrangea is sure to dress your landscape in exquisite color from summer to fall, as well as draw butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard! Hardy throughout USDA zones 5 through 9 and are very long-lasting blooming ornamentals. The mopheads dry to a lovely tan hue and persist well into winter!

Planting and Application:

Penny Mac Hydrangea has an upright, arching form, lending elegance to the huge heads of flowers atop the stems. These low-maintenance shrubs are perfect for your home's foundations or as an anchor to soften the corners of structures. Tall enough to add narrow hedges and screening around your property, providing flowering definition and privacy without sacrificing space!

Plant one beside your front door for a welcome that guests won't soon forget, or use several as an eye-popping hedge along your driveway. This is an amazing shrub with a lot of options for showcasing its remarkable features. Limb up and expose the multi-stem trunks for a unique specimen tree-form or allow to keep the branches to the ground for hiding an eyesore anywhere!
