Celery green flowers age to deep green and red.

Hydrangea macrophylla Rhapsody™

Celery green blooms age to deep, apple green and stay that color until a cooler nights when the edges turn blood red and stay that way until frost.

Guaranteed to dazzle the hydrangea world, the crisp, celery green flowers of this selection put Magical®️ Rhapsody at the top of the list for unique gift plants. There are plenty of varieties whose blooms are a bit green as they start to open…but have you ever seen a mature flower that holds its green color until fall? Magical®️ Rhapsody is perfect for container gardens and small spaces. Flowers open green with a white eye-zone and gradually turn darker as they mature – ending the season with fiery-red tips.

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.
