The Penny Mac Hydrangea is a classic mophead hydrangea with an added bonus. It will bloom in colder areas even when the branches are killed to the ground, unlike most other hydrangeas of this type, which need older branches from the previous year to bloom. It grows well in shady parts of your garden, and blooms in late summer and into fall, just when your other shrubs have stopped flowering. You get late blooms and a plant for shade – a double bonus. The large rounded flower heads are 8 or more inches across, and they are pink or blue, depending on your soil. They will turn blue in acid soil, or if you grow this plant in a container with soil for acid-loving plants. In more alkaline soil they will be a beautiful pink color. Either way, this is a wonderful plant that is easy to grow, the blooms are attractive for weeks and weeks, and it needs no special care at all.

  • Classic flowering shrub of late summer
  • Large flowers heads of pink or blue
  • Flowers well even in zones 4 and 5

It is ideal for filling shady parts of your garden, bringing color and interest to areas that are otherwise hard to plant in. it will grow in any ordinary garden soil, and it should be kept well-watered in summer. It is hardy from zone 5 to zone 9, and unlike most other mophead hydrangeas it can be grown and brought into flower in zone 4. This plant is normally free or pests and diseases, and it is easy to grow, needing no special care except for an annual pruning.
