Pink Shira Hydrangea
Compact Hydrangea with Huge Blooms!
The Pink Shira Hydrangea is a standout hydrangea noted for its compact growth, strong stems, and reliable long-lasting blooms.
The huge flowers emerge green and become infused with red, and then transform to shades of rich pink. Acidic soils deliver tones of lavender purple.
The Pink Shira has been noted to bloom even when other varieties have been damaged by frost. It will be happiest planted in well-drained moist soil.
For the best floral display each season, prune right after bloom because it sets bud in the fall on old wood.
Flower color is affected by pH. For blue flowers, the soil must be more acidic and for pink flowers soil must be more alkaline.
