Hydrangea Paniculata Wims Red is a new form with strong stems that carry 30cm-long honey-scented flower clusters, which turn from white to pink, then intensify in colour as they mature to a rich wine red. Its long flowering period and chameleon-like tendencies make it a great investment for the shrub border. The flower-heads can be picked for dried arrangements.
To enhance flowering prune hard in early spring, cut back the previous season's shoots to within a few buds of the permanent, woody framework of the plant.
This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.
