Pinky Winky Hydrangea


A very unique hardy Hydrangea with massive two-toned, white and pink flowers in mid-summer. Strong upright red stems hold the large, 12-16″ blooms up so you never get the drooping look like Pee Gee Hydrangea. The flower heads continue to grow throughout the season and as the older flowers turn dark pink the new flowers continue to emerge white. The effect is stunning. A truly remarkable plant for the summer and autumn landscape.

Pinky Winky features bicolor blooms and strong, upright stems. Its blooms are indeterminate, meaning the plant continues to produce new, pure white flowers even as the older flowers age a deep pink at the base of the bloom. The result is a unique, very large bicolor bloom produced on new wood. Blooms can reach twelve to sixteen inches in length.

Stephanie Fleming was raised at Behnke’s Nurseries in Beltsville. Her Mom, Sonja, was one of Albert & Rose Behnke’s four children. She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.

  1. Unfortunately, yes, they can. Hydrangeas are in that middle-ground of neither a deer favorite nor something they avoid. If you have a bad deer browsing problem, we would recommend netting them or spraying them with repellent.
