This is a fantastic performer in St. John's, Newfoundland. Stays consistently pink despite acidic soil. My plants is three years old...8 trusses on a plant only 2 feet tall...great for limited space.

I was originally very pleased with this plant, which I planted in my partly-shaded garden last summer. Although I noticed that it did need extra water when it got too hot, it seemed to be doing well.

However, I was very disappointed when spring came this year, and after waiting several weeks for signs of life, I came to the conclusion that I was not going to have any pink hydrangea blooms in my garden this summer.

The plant is still in my garden in mid-June, but there is no sign of growth. Ottawa, Ontario is supposed to be Zone 5, but I'm noticing that many plants that are supposed to be hardy to Zone 5 do not make it through the winter in my garden, whereas plants hardy to Zone 4 or Zone 3 do quite well.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Montville, New Jersey
St John's, Newfoundland and Labrador
