Dark leaves and a bicolor flower

Hydrangea macrophylla Seaside Serenade® Fire Island

Dark coppery leaves serve as a backdrop for the explosion of color to come. A strong, repeat flowering form, the convergence of color on a single variety is spectacular!

Hydrangeas may appear to be delicate, but they often make excellent additions to partially shaded seaside gardens. Aptly named for its explosion of color, Fire Island is one of the most thrilling new varieties we’ve seen in the world of Hydrangea breeding! Dark, coppery leaves emerge in the spring and serve as foil for the amazing flowers to come. Big blooms in multiple shades of pink converge in a blaze of unparalleled color. As the flowers mature, each floret fades to white with hints of green with dark, cerise edges.  A workhorse from start to finish, Fire Island has strong stems and hard flowers that will persist for months in the garden and make great cuts. This is a Hydrangea that will continue to please!
