‘Wee Bit Grumpy’ bigleaf hydrangea shows off its hot pink, magenta, or moody violet flowers (depending on soil pH). These fully saturated mophead blooms are packed onto a tight, compact habit. Easy for tucking into the front of your border to deliver summerlong color with its reblooming nature! The shrub enjoys full sun to part shade. In warmer zones, 8 and above, it will benefit placement from afternoon shade.
