Abracadabra® Orb Hydrangea

Hydrangea macrophylla 'HorOrb' PP #21,635

If you're looking for an unusual hydrangea with bright color, this is the plant for you! Vivid mop-head flowers emerge green and peach, maturing to hot pink. The distinctive black stems are interesting even when the plant is not in bloom. An excellent summer color item for the mixed border. Performs better with part shade in warmer regions. Blooms on old wood.
