Red and green flowers

Hydrangea macrophylla Tilt-A-Swirl™

Swirly red and green flowers cover this perfect garden and container plant for months and then age to deep maroon and apple green until a hard frost.

Every once in a while a new plant comes along that you know is going to make it big. A variety that in spite of all the others on the market, is able to stand on its own and gain popularity&nbsp simply because it's that good. That's what we think will happen with Tilt-A-Swirl. Rosey-red, lacy flowers open with green centers and continue to transition into new color variations for months. Enjoy the ride with this new addition to the Bloomin' Easy®️ Collection.

This plant is sold exclusively through the Bloomin'Easy® brand.

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.
