If you don't know about the Pink Diamond Panicle Hydrangeas, then you're in for a treat! Pink Diamond Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata 'Pink Diamond') is an amazing addition to your garden this year. This isn't the big flower-ball shrub you might think of when you imagine a Hydrangea in your yard! Instead, this is a form of Hydrangea forms panicles, named because the flowers aren't rounded, but grow in upright spires that elongate throughout the growing season and have a cone-shaped appearance.

Pink Diamond Panicle Hydrangeas flowers open in summer when a lot of other shade flowers are fading. They open a luscious cream color and gradually turn a rich shade of deep pink. The different shades of flowers give each flower head a show-stopping ombre effect, with white flowers at one end and deep pink at the other! Pollinators adore these blossoms, and you will too in your bouquets and floral arrangements, both fresh and dried!

Backed by a bright green mound of 6 to 8-foot tall and wide, forming airy clumps of foliage and darker stems for contrast, these Panicle Hydrangeas are rugged, and reliable plant and is considered the most cold-hardy of this clan of ornamental flowering shrubs so you can plant it without the worry of having to coddle it. Growing throughout USDA hardiness zones 3 through 8, these unique blooming shrubs can tolerate it all!

Planting and Application:

The panicles are held upright, and this large upright habit means that Pink Diamond is fantastic at the back of the perennial or romantic cottage border. These diamonds in the rough have an informal look when compared to other snowball types and look great in a more natural or woodland garden! Romantic blooms for pollinator gardens and cutting borders, as well as incredible backdrops for your seating areas and meditation nooks.

It can also be easily trained as a small tree for a garden centerpiece. Plant Pink Diamond in your shady garden areas and enjoy the color display all season long!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Panicle Hydrangeas do great in full sun for the strongest stems, so provide at least 6 hours of sunlight, favoring the morning sun. However, those planted in hotter growing zones do appreciate afternoon shade. Plant in enriched, well-drained soil and provide consistent water throughout the growing season. Hydrangea love having thickly mulched beds to keep their roots cool and hold in moisture.

  • Full Sun & Part Sun
  • Moist Well-Drained Soil
  • Color Isn't pH-Dependent
  • Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Prune Early Spring
