Description

The Penny Mac Hydrangea is a fast growing, very popular Hydrangea with pink to blue blooms in the summer. The Penny Mac is the perfect, low maintenance Hydrangea for the gardener with little time.

Its lush foliage can soften any landscape around trees, borders, fences, etc. If your soil is acidic the blooms will be on the blue side. Neutral soils will create more of a pink color. The Penny Mac is a repeat bloomer.

Combine your Hydrangeas with boulders, perennials, and even plant in masses for an explosion of color. You can't go wrong with the Penny Mac! Your company is sure to admire the color of the Penny Mac Hydrangea. Do you have a natural area? Plant in 3's or in group plantings with hostas, dianthus, abelias, and even roses.

The maintenance is super low for a Hydrangea. Minimal pruning is required in the winter to maintain size. After blooming, prune dead blooms and they will bloom again. Bring the blooms inside! Take advantage of the natural beauty of these flowers and trim a few for a lovely, simple arrangement.

Be sure to order a larger size for instant impact while supplies last!

How To Care

When planting your Penny Mac Hydrangea be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new plants to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant Hydrangeas. Avoid planting hydrangeas in summer when temperatures are mid80s or higher.

The Penny Mac Hydrangea requires full sun to part shade and prefers moist, well-drained, fertile soil. In hot climates, hydrangeas will do best with some shade. If you have alkaline soil and want a blue hydrangea, be sure to amend your soil. To acidify your soil, amend with aluminum sulfate or elemental sulfur. If you are seeking a pink color, add lime several times per year. Keep the soil moist, but not saturated, especially in summer and in the first year after planting. Throughout its life Hydrangeas will do best with a deep watering once weekly during hot temperatures.Mulching at about 3 inches deep is highly recommended for hydrangeas. Mulching will cut back on watering needs and protect your plant in extreme temperatures. Choose a slow release fertilizer for flowering plants. Fertilize once in spring after the last chance of frost and again in early summer for best results. You don’t need to prune hydrangeas, but pruning after they are done blooming can help encourage a bushier growth and renew an older plant.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. You can treat mites, scale, whiteflies, and aphids naturally with neem oil or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Fungal infection can be prevented by making sure the planting site has good drainage and by avoiding overhead watering. Fungal infections can be treated with a fungicide. Generally, treating fungus after infection isn't effective so if you have problems with other plants or in a prior year, treat preventatively in early spring.

Penny Mac Hydrangea

I was nervous about buying a hydrangea online, but the experience was great. Shipping was quick, and the plant was packaged well- no damage. The plant had tons of foliage- it’s been planted a week and is already growing. Can’t wait to see what the blooms look like.

Great plants that on time every time

Great experience..not crazy about how hard it is to take these plants out of the package but that is obviously why they are in almost perfect condition when I receive them

Will buy from them again :)

Fast shipping and excellent quality! Can't wait for my Penny Mac to bloom! I wanted to buy another and it was out of stock. Bought from Nature Hills and the pant arrived in a terrible state. Highly recommend buying from The Planting Tree :)

Impressed

I have to say that I am very impressed with this plant and the company. My hydrangea arrived quicker than expected and had green leaves already. I believe I planted it 3 weeks ago and it has grown so fast and last night we discovered that it was already getting buds. I cannot wait til they bloom! I have bought several plants online and am very happy!
