Hydrangea is a genus of about 100 species of flowering plants native to southern and eastern Asia (from Japan to China, the Himalaya and Indonesia) and North and South America. Hydrangeas produce flowers from early spring to late autumn. The flowers of Hydrangea are carried in bunches, at the ends of the stems. Each individual Hydrangea flower is relatively small. However, the display of color is enhanced by a ring of modified bracts around each flower.
In most species of Hydrangea the flowers are white, but in some species, can be blue, red, pink, or purple. In Hydrangea species the exact color often depends upon the acidity or alkalinity of the soil. Acidic soils produce blue flowers, neutral soils produce pale cream petals, and alkaline soils result in pink or purple.
Plants should be fun and make you smile. That’s the whole idea behind Abracadabra Hydrangeas. You’ve never seen such fun and funky flowers on top of showy black satin stems. Funky mop-head flowers emerge green and peach and mature to a hot pink.
Black satin stems add to the fun. Flower color can be pushed to blue with the addition of aluminum sulfate. Immediate shipping, Size shipped: 4″ pot. Hardy Zones 5-9, Mature Height: 3-4′
