Hydrangea macrophylla Magical® Bride

EVERLASTING COLOR FOR YOUR GARDEN™ Strong, white flowers on sturdy stems hold up well in a garden setting. Blooms age to deep lime lime green and hold their color until frost.

What happens when a bride walks into the room…all eyes are upon her! And this new Everlasting hydrangea is no different. The blooms of this stunning variety remind us of lace and pearls. Yes, perfect for a summer wedding, pure white flowers with hard blooms and strong stems for cuts. As the flowers mature, they turn to mint green, adding yet another nuance to this promising new selection. Bride is smaller in stature than many hydrangeas, and more tolerant of sun-with flowers that don’t burn as easily. Petite and captivating, this Bride is certain to command attention!

If you haven’t heard about the Everlasting Series of Hydrangeas, you are in for a treat. This is a super tough line of Hydrangea macrophyllas from our wonderful friends at Kolster BV in The Netherlands. These stellar new selections were bred for the cut flower market, so they have amazingly tough stems, strong, deeply colored, think leathery foliage and the strongest, longest lasting mop head blooms we’ve ever seen. You can seriously bang someone over the head with these and they will not loose one floret. We’ve done it—trust us. Everyone is searching for the next re-blooming hydrangea, but what about a hydrangea that grows three feet tall and has blooms that start one color and take a journey to maturity that may involve three or more color changes along the way? These are better than re-blooming, they’re Everlasting!

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
