Gatsby Pink™ is a blushing beauty all summer long! The tall bloom wands boast exceptionally large, nodding florets dyed a rich pink color. The lush oak leaves keep the shrub pretty all season long, taking on tinges of Burgundy when fall rolls around.

Gatsby Pink™ is a Proven Winners® ColorChoice® plant chosen for its exceptional beauty and performance. To be selected for this group, it was thoroughly tested in trial gardens all around the world, and found to have superb health and vigor as well as spectacular color.

Gatsby Pink™ is adaptable, working well with most soils, as long as it is well-drained and gets some sun. In the south it prefers some shade, and in the north it likes full sun and some shelter from the chilliest winds. Gatsby Pink™ blooms on old growth, so it is recommended that they be trimmed after they are finished flowering in the late summer. Fertilize in early spring with a Tree and Shrub slow-release fertilizer. This vigorous beauty will reward you with a summer's worth of huge, plush blooms! Zones 5 to 9.

White oak leaf hydrangea from Wayside Gardens
Greenwich, CT plant lover from CT wrote (December 26, 2016):
I bought the white version of this plant from Wayside Gardens in the late 1970s and planted it in an area that is part sun, and it is still going very, very strong. It requires no care, and has lived through drought, cold, you name it. It bloomed fully last summer when all of the pink and blue hydrangeas in Greenwich that were previously in the ground failed because of a December warm spell. It blooms most years, but not every year because I have to cut it down to 5 to 6 feet. The white version of this plant is a very tall plant, up to 10 feet and really should be planted where you don't need to trim ii. Anyway, I was a new homeowner then and did not know better. This plant has large luxuriant blooms that are visible all summer and early fall when you drive into our driveway. It is very happy in Southern Connecticut and now has a large baby across the garden stairway that had its first bloom last summer. The plant has spread quite a bit, which is good because I have it on a steep hill that serves as a large garden. I totally recommend this plant.

A Tradition of Distinction

Since its founding in 1920, Wayside Gardens has brought the rarest and highest-quality plants to the garden market. Wayside was founded in 1920 by two acclaimed growers who came together to pursue their shared vision of marketing all high-end plants for the serious garden enthusiast. Originally located in Mentor, Ohio, Wayside Gardens swiftly grew a reputation for the highest-quality plants and the most sophisticated clientele. In 1975, Wayside was purchased by the Park Seed Company, and moved to Hodges, SC.  The company has flourished since then, growing to become an undisputed leader in rare and unique plant growing.

Unparalleled Selection

Wayside's horticulturists travel the world in search of new and unusual plant cultivars and proudly offer the garden industry’s most sophisticated selection of high quality and rare perennial plants, bulbs, trees, shrubs, roses, vines, and indoor plants. Beginning with ties to the Dutch family bulb business in Holland, our horticulturists have developed close relationships with perennial and bulb growers throughout the United States and Europe, providing access to many rare and unique garden treasures. Throughout our history we have had the pleasure of introducing numerous exotic foreign and domestic plant cultivars to the American garden market. The Wayside collection of new and exclusive plant products is so preeminent that the catalog has long been lauded in the industry and is even used as a reference work in horticultural schools.
