Stunning florets that change from green and cream to soft strawberry, deepening with age. The abundant, tall, conical panicles grow 20-30cm tall. The pickable blooms adorn the lush, deep green foliage from summer to autumn. If it's classic elegance you are after this is the perfect plant to create a distinct impression.

Hydrangea ‘Pink Diamond’ is a more sun tolerant variety than most Hydrangeas. This makes it a lot more versatile in the garden. It holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit so you know it not only looks good, but is easy care and enduring.

PeeGee Hydrangea are very hip and happening in the world of landscapers and for good reason. They are valuable in part shade positions and offer very impressive and long lasting in blooms. They have good cold tolerance as they flower on new wood so are not bothered by late season frosts. While more sun hardy than most Hydrangeas, they are best protected from the harsh afternoon sun. They are deciduous and can be pruned to shape once the flowering has finished.

Hydrangeas grow best when planted in a sheltered position of the garden where the roots are cool and moist. If you add plenty of organic matter to the soil and you will be rewarded with masses of stunning blooms.

Hydrangea flowers are good for picking. To help make the flowers last longer, bring a bucket of water out with you to the garden, plunge them in as soon as you have cut the stem. Once you are inside, cut them again (cut the stem on an angle so it has more surface area and doesn’t’ sit on the bottom of the vase) and hold them in hot, boiled water for 30 seconds before arranging in a vase. If it starts to wilt, you can plunge it into a bath – they can rehydrate through the petals, stems and flowers.
