Penny Mac Hydrangea

Penny Mac hydrangea is a wonderful flowering shrub that was introduced by Penny McHenry, founder of the American Hydrangea Society.

Penny Mac produces abundant mophead flowers (large, rounded clusters) of deep-blue or pink. Its major bloom is in May, but expect blooms through fall on this repeat bloomer. This plant blooms consistently, even if the first buds are killed by a late frost. Blooms make beautiful dried flowers.

This plant is a fast grower and has good disease resistance. Use this Louisiana Super Plant as a specimen plant or in borders and mass plantings for an outstanding show in your landscape.
