Hydrangea macrophylla 'Cityline Paris'

Hydrangea macrophylla 'Cityline Paris'

Common name bigleaf hydrangea
Family hydrangeaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z5-9)
Flowers red-pink (summer)
Size 12-36"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes moist, well-drained soil

Deep pink flowers maturing to green. Ours may be planted in a bit more sun than it really likes (for full sun exposure, it really demands consistent soil moisture, a requirement our garden (and its gardeners) is unlikely to meet at all times. So hopefully the specimen we got is a tolerant individual. In its first year after being planted, it produced a few light pink flowers – nice enough, but I hope to see the deeper pink blooms it is supposed to have when it's established next year.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
