Hydrangea paniculata ‘Wim’s Red’ is an excellent panicle hydrangea; in fact, it is definitely our favourite. Can be grown as a standard to make a very special feature plant.

Bred by Wim Rutten, circa 2005.

Ray florets: 3 or 4 sepals, overlapping, slightly serrated, 30mm diam.

Towards the end of the season, the ray florets invert exposing the reverse sides which have changed to a bright magenta colour.
