Pink Diamond Hydrangea
Huge Pink Blooms from a Small Shrub
Pink Diamond is a new hydrangea that was bred from the popular PeeGee line of hydrangeas, but without the problems of PeeGee. The huge Pink Diamond bloom can reach a foot in length and over 6 inches across and these heavy white blooms are supported well on the stems, giving a whole shrub that is covered in white. The flowers mature to a pretty pink color, hence the name, and they stay that way all the way through until frosts arrive.
Unlike larger hydrangeas, Pink Diamond fits into smaller landscapes beautifully. It barely reaches ten foot at maturity, which makes it a stunning back of the border shrub that that is attractive all the way though hot summer days.
Plant Pink Diamond in full sun or part shade, or even moderate shade, where the blooms will light up the area. These trouble free shrubs are not bothered by droughts or late frosts, nor are they generally stricken with any bugs. Your only maintenance is just an optional light prune after the flush of flowers if you choose to reduce the size slightly.
