Hot Pink Blossoms on Showy, Black Stems

Hydrangea (Big Leaf Hydrangea) Abracadabra Orb, Hydrangea macrophylla 'Hororb', will certainly add an unusual and charming look to your landscape.

Its unique mop-head flowers will provide an excellent summer color to your mixed border too. The flowers first emerge green and peach then mature to hot pink.

These hot pink blossoms standout out on the showy black satin stems; stems are very interesting even without blooms!

If you want a blue flower color you need to add aluminum sulfate to the soil. Blooming on old wood from summer through fall, Hydrangea Abracadabra™ Orb usually requires no pruning but may be trimmed after flowering.

It is best to fertilize this hydrangea in early spring with the recommended rate of slow release fertilizer. Deadhead immediately after the flowers fade to ensure prolific flowering year after year. This will preserve their somewhat pristine but always attractive habit.

Use this plant for flower cutting, in borders, containers, or mass plantings.

Zones 5-9.

* Hot Pink for your garden!
