Pink and green bi-color flowers

Hydrangea macrophylla Elegance™

With a combination of colors never seen on Hydrangeas before, Elegance will be the focal point in any garden setting.

One of the most variable color combinations in Hydrangea breeding; perfectly round, scalloped flowers begin a soft, chartreuse-yellow and open to salmon-rose with flecks of green in some of the petals. As these intriguing blooms mature, the salmon color becomes more prominent, but there’s always the allure of chartreuse color - as if some of the petals were backlit.  A rebloomer, Elegance makes an ideal garden plant. With stems that can be pruned close to the ground, flower buds will form on new growth. So, whether you choose a prominent place on your patio, or that perfect spot in your garden, Elegance offers months of performance with a very fashionable twist!
