Wee Bit Giddy Hydrangeas are a new introduction from Proven Winners, and we love them for our gardens for a wide variety of reasons. The biggest and best part that caught our eye was their eye-catching vibrant red color that blooms and reblooms all summer long. These spectacular mophead flowers will bring stand out in any garden, with bright pink-red blossoms framed with dark green foliage. If you really want to punch up the color profile, use Espoma Soil Acidifier to amend your soil - the extra acidity will cause your Wee Bit Giddy hydrangeas to bloom a rich purple color instead. This color-changing dynamic is one of our favorite traits of show-stopping hydrangeas such as Wee Bit Giddy.
Wee Bit Giddy hydrangeas are wonderful for new gardeners since they have been cultivated to be durable, disease-resistant, and hardy in a variety of soil conditions. These low-maintenance shrubs are also better left to grow their own way - pruning or deadheading could negatively affect their natural reblooming cycles. Don't be afraid to take a few cuttings inside, however - fresh-cut hydrangea flowers will look stunning in a vase on your dining room table, and your hydrangeas outside will continue to bloom.
Wee Bit Giddy will work in many landscaping and gardening designs since they are both compact dwarf shrubs and vibrant red rebloomers. You could plant a border around your garden, create a low hedge, or place one or two in choice locations to be specimen focal points. They would work in containers as well, but the color-changing options are best manipulated when they are planted in the ground. Since these will sometimes continue to bloom into late fall, you can use these flowering shrubs in your winter interest garden - leave the dried flower heads on the plants to attract birds in the winter months. We also love decorating fall and holiday centerpieces with dried flowerheads.
