Huge, re-blooming Flowers and Fall Color
Penny Mac Hydrangea, Hydrangea macrophylla 'Penny Mac', is a deciduous, ornamental shrub with outstanding blooms. Plant one beside your front door for a welcome that guests won’t soon forget, or use several as a eye-popping hedge along your driveway. This is an amazing shrub with a lot of options for showcasing its remarkable features.
Your Penny Mac is a big leaf variety of Hydrangea. 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 with other Hydrangeas, blooms will tend to be more blue 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 summer to fall, as well as draw butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard. 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.
Penny Mac Hydrangea will grow up to 6 feet in height with a 4-foot spread. It has an upright, arching form, lending elegance to the huge heads of flowers atop the stems. Penny Mac Hydrangea is a vigorous grower, so you won’t have to wait long for it to establish itself in your yard. Buds set on new wood so this is especially a great Hydrangea if you live in a colder climate.
If you’re looking for a Hydrangea, Penny Mac is a terrific choice. You can’t go wrong with a Hydrangea with 7-inch flowers that just go-and-go right until fall…and then provides fall color too! Plant one today and you’ll soon see just how amazing this gorgeous Hydrangea is.
