Hydrangea ‘Pink Elf’

Botanical Name:
Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Pink Elf’

Hydrangeas are workhorses in the garden. They produce sumptuous petals of color to add beauty to your garden. Most species of hydrangeas can be grown in either full sun or partial shade. They are resistant to most insects and diseases. They can be grown in a wide range of soil but prefer a rich, moist soil and should be planted where watering will not be a problem. Avoid dry windy sites, as their large, soft leaves lose water quickly, especially on hot, windy days, causing the foliage to wilt.

‘Pink Elf’ is a dwarf which when grown under ideal conditions, it reaches only about two and a half feet tall and wide. ‘Pink Elf’ is one of the few hydrangeas that stay pink under conditions that would turn most hydrangeas blue.
