You might be surprised to find a panicle hydrangea on our site, since not all of them are very pollinator-friendly. Thankfully, Pinky Winky® Panicle Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata) is! The lacecap blooms prominently display their nectar-rich florets, which pollinators adore. Since the flowers are not as tightly packed together, it's easy for bees and butterflies to reach the nectar reserves and pollen. Both you and the pollinators will love their gradient of two-toned flowers, which darken to pink as they mature.
Pinky Winky® is a hardy hydrangea that is surprisingly easy to care for. It blooms on new wood, which means it will reliably bloom year after year in your garden after a quick trim in the spring.

Plant arrived in good shape - watered as instructed and planted within a week.
It’s not dead yet I trimmed it back and is starting to grow again I take very good care of it I’m hoping it’s OK
The quart size was sold out so I bought the smaller one. Put him in a pot where he is healthy and happy. Will put in a large pot or plant him in the spring. Has tripled in size already. What a great company - excellent customer services I asked what hydrangeas were good for full sun and the next day received a link with full information.
I was shocked that it was just baby plants with just a few leaves, one of the plants had no leave. None of them had blooms. I have to say I was surprised. Unless there is something I am missing about how tiny these were and again, one without any leaves, all with no blooms as none were big enough, I would say very overpriced.
This plant was ready to hit the ground running ,so far it is doing fantastic!
