Overview
Pink Sunset™ Hydrangea produces an abundance of intense pink blooms for months of summer color. Mophead blooms open pale pink, and darken to a vibrant bubblegum pink color. Flower coloration can vary with soil pH: alkaline soil is required for rich pink hues - acidic soils will produce clear blue flowers. A delightful compact habit is excellent for large containers, centerpieces, or patio plants. In the garden, a sturdy structure and strong root system produce vigorous plants and support oversized blooms. (Hydrangea macrophylla)

Description

12-18" tall x 12-18” wide. Pink Sunset™ Hydrangea grows in upright mounds that support dozens of long-lasting blooms. Each blossom lasts up to four months, for color that doesn’t quit. Flowers stand atop strong stems above rich green foliage. Pink Sunset™ is ideal for gardens with neutral to alkaline soils -- as with all bigleaf hydrangeas, flower coloration varies with soil pH. Rich pink hues develop in alkaline soils, while acid soils will produce clear blue flowers. For best results and true pink color, test soil pH and amend in spring as needed to maintain appropriate pH. Plants perform best in a well-drained soil with morning sun and afternoon shade, and do not tolerate full sun. Use as a showy accent in shady borders or plant in containers on the porch. The rounded blooms make excellent cut flowers. United States Plant Patent PP#28,907.
