Hydrangea - Big Leaf 'Pistachio' - 3 Gal.


Hydrangea macrophylla 'Pistachio'

While we are fixated on blue in the Hydrangea world, Ball Horticulture is working hard to open up our world to new colors with 'Pistachio'. How about this for a mix...red, purple, bronze and green all in varying degrees on each flower? It's a kaleidoscope of varying colors that is made all the more impressive by this selection's ability to rebloom and to bloom on old and new wood. Add up its unique, ever-changing color palette with its incredible desire to bloom and its zone 5 hardiness and you have yet another breakthrough in the Hydrangea world! You'll be wowed by Pistachio for all these outstanding traits but the one you might like best is the carefree nature that sees it growing well in any sunny to half-day sun area in your landscape that has moist, well-drained soil with very little input from you other than getting it established. Blessed with a dense, rounded form, it will be as easy to find a home for Pistachio in your yard as it will be to show off its remarkable bloom.
