Hydrangea paniculata 'Tardiva' with pink bracts....This is not 'Pink Diamond', actually, it's pinker

You've got to pay attention every year. You never know when some plant is going to surprise you. This Tardiva has always been a wonderful plant and has grown to massive dimensions. This year, no doubt because of some unique combination on weather conditions, the bracts have turned bubblegum pink. They're usually reddish but this is unprecedented. That pink isn't my favorite color but it's very cool to see so much of it where it's never been before.
