Hydrangea 'Wim's Red' PBR (H) Overview
Hydrangea paniculata 'Wim's Red' is a tall-growing deciduous shrub with red-tinted, branching stems that carry clusters of distinctive cone-shaped flowers and toothed leaves. The attractive, scented flowers provide a long season of interest - they appear white in spring before gently developing a pink hue that strengthens throughout the summer to a deep wine red colour in autumn. It is occasionally known as 'Fire and Ice' because of the colour change. Perfect for flower beds and borders of most kinds, Hydrangea 'Wim's Red' flowerheads are popular as cut flowers - both fresh and dried. It can also be grown in large pots. Easy to look after, flowering is enhanced by pruning back hard in early spring, to within a few buds of the permanent, woody framework of the plant. Tolerant of most well-drained soils, Hydrangea paniculata 'Wim's Red' prefers a neutral to slightly acid soil. Not recommended for shallow chalk soils. This cultivar is protected under intellectual property laws by Plant Breeders' Rights. These provide the breeder of new plants exclusive control over the plant material for a set amount of time.
