A Stunning Hydrangea Unlike Any You’ve Seen
Watch visitors to your garden do a double-take when they see your Pistachio Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Horwack’ Next GenerationTM PISTACHIO). Its bicolor blooms feature lime-green petals with reddish centers. Talk about a color pop! If you love hydrangeas, this is a must-have for your collection.
Your New Favorite Hydrangea
Pistachio Hydrangea is in the “bigleaf” class of hydrangeas, and its large, round “mophead-type” flowers cover compact shrubs. While many bigleaf hydrangeas bloom only once each year, Pistachio Hydrangea is a rebloomer. So even when late-season frosts nip the developing flower buds, Pistachio Hydrangea will still put on a show for you later in the summer!
Two Essentials for Healthy Growth
If you can meet two of Pistachio Hydrangea’s growing needs, you’re well on your way to growing a healthy plant that can produce masses of flowers:
1. Light. Pistachio Hydrangea prospers in partial shade. Direct, afternoon sun -- particularly in southern climates -- is a bit too harsh. The perfect garden spot for Pistachio Hydrangea is one that receives morning sun and afternoon shade.
2. Water. This is a plant that thrives in moist (but well-draining) soil. After you plant Pistachio Hydrangea, the first year is vital to its overall health because this is when the root system is becoming established. You’ll want to make sure and keep it well-watered during this first year so its roots won’t dry out, which can weaken the plant.
A Billowy Mound of Flowers
If you have a small garden, or if you need a shorter hydrangea in front of larger varieties for a tiered look, Pistachio Hydrangea’s size is perfect. Although it grows only 3 feet tall, its width spreads to 5 feet, which makes it a good “filler” plant. And if you’ve never grown shrubs in containers, Pistachio Hydrangea works beautifully as a potted plant for shady patios, porches and balconies!
