Hydrangea q. Gatsby Pink Description
New! Hydrangea Gatsby Pink® is a joy to look at throughout the season. This oakleaf hydrangea is tried and trouble free, and more drought tolerant than other Hydrangeas.
Gatsby Pink® Hydrangea is an easy to grow shrub that makes an excellent flowering hedge plant.
The Oakleaf Hydrangea gets its name from the shape of its large and beautiful green leaves. These leaves turn brilliant red in the fall if planted in a sunnier location.
Gatsby Pink® begins blooming in summer, producing huge cone shaped flowers that quickly turn white to a luscious deep pink. Flowers stand up well to wind and extreme weather conditions, and can be cut or dried.
Gatsby Pink™ is adaptable to most soils as long as it is well drained. It will thrive in full sun, but appreciates some shade in the south. Prune immediately after flowering to give it time to produce new growth and set buds for the following summer as it blooms on old wood.
Colorful and cold hardy, you'll want to find a place in your garden for this colorful accent.
Gatsby Pink® Hydrangea makes the perfect long-blooming Hedge Plant for driveways or fence lines. This compact Hydrangea is also a superb companion to the drought-proof Ornamental Grasses, late-blooming Sedums, and long-blooming KnockOut Roses.
Hydrangeas are continuing to take the flowering shrub world by storm. They are widely adaptable to both clay and sandy soil provided they are given copious amounts of water during the prolonged summer dry spells.
Gatsby Pink® is a Proven Winners® Flowering Shrub
