I'm in Love: Pink Diamond Hydrangea

Hydrangea paniculata 'Pink Diamond'

As the panicle flower of the Pink Diamond Hydrangea matures, it takes on hues of pink and dusty rose.  I expect that will happen here the end of August or beginning of September.  Here's a photo of mature blooms taken last year.
This photo was taken during the late evening.  When I first saw this hydrangea come into the greenhouse, I was in love.  There's a romantic essence to hydrangeas, especially paniculatas and lace-capped.  Though, I'm sure, many will say the mopheads rival my favorites for romanticism.
