Proven Winners

Hot pink flowers top dramatic black satin stems.

If you're looking for an unusual hydrangea with bright color, this is the plant for you!  Mophead flowers emerge green and peach, then mature to a hot pink.  Black satin stems add to the fun.  Flower color can be pushed to purple-blue with the addition of aluminum sulfate.   The distinctive black stems are interesting even when the plant is not in bloom, and when it does bloom, look out!  Bold, bright flowers really light up the summer garden. Add aluminum sulfate to the soil to encourage blue flower color.
