Single color flowers are so last season! What you need are bushes that bloom one color and transition to another as the summer progresses. Magical Flame Hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata 'Bokratorch') will do just that!

This deciduous ornamental shrub covers itself with delightful dark green foliage in the early spring. It's a lovely precursor to the flower power that follows soon after.

As the days grow warmer and warmer and summer weather arrives, Magical Flame will blossom creamy white panicles. They'll stand out beautifully against the darker leaves underneath!

These flower clusters age first into light pink briefly before settling into their final pink-red color. Magical indeed!

You'll never have to worry about getting bored by the color of your Hydrangea! It'll change itself up as summer goes on to keep things interesting!

Cut a few cone-shaped flowers to add texture to your indoor bouquets. You'll get to choose the color you want. Bring it inside for a light and creamy accent to your dining room or wait until later in the season for a dark pink pop to put on the kitchen counter.

Leaving the blooms for the garden, though, ensures you'll be visited by lots of fluttering butterflies! Magical Flame Hydrangea is a butterfly magnet!

This woody hydrangea will bloom for you well into fall and create fantastic fall interest. Plus, it doesn't mind urban settings so you won't have to worry about pollution bothering its health!

Never settle for a single shade Hydrangea again! Keep 'em guessing by planting a Magical Flame Hydrangea in your garden today!

#How to Use Magical Flame Hydrangea in the Landscape

If you have a backyard, you have a spot for Magical Flame Hydrangea. In fact, even if you don't we're pretty sure there's still a spot!

Plant one in front of the parts of your siding you'd rather people not see. The shrub is smaller in stature, meaning it will cover eyesores, without hindering any views from your windows.

Use as an accent in your perennial flower beds. Its Magical Flame's dark foliage that creates an excellent background for colorful perennial plants!

Since this bush starts with white flowers, use it as a backdrop for your summer photoshoots. Then, like a proper fashion-abiding samaritan, it'll have shed that white and turn burgundy red by labor day.

The interesting texture of the foliage and panicles make Magical Flame a lovely choice in places of more formal hedges like boxwoods. Who says edges need to be crisp in order to be beautiful? Not us!

If you've exhausted all room in your backyard garden, try adding them as statement pieces near your entryway or driveway. There, it's sure to help make a big and bold first impression.

Should you find yourself with the opposite problem, consider planting many Magical Flame Hydrangeas together in a mass planting. The effect will leave you, and everyone else, breathless!

#ProPlantTips for Care

There are a couple of things you'll always want to know when picking out the perfect spot for your plant. How much sun is it going to want and what kind of soil will it be happiest in?

Luckily, when it comes to Magical Flame, we have those answers! It'll bloom best during those mid-summer months in full sun. However, it'll do just fine in partial shade as well.

This sun-loving plant will also thank you for planting it in well-drained soil. You won't want your feet wet all day and neither does this woody shrub.

Should you want to reduce the size at all, you'll want to grab your shears in the early spring. That way you won't bother any potential new growth.

Like most other plants, Magical Flame Hydrangea appreciates having a layer of mulch around it starting an inch away from the base. Not only will it keep the root system protected, but it'll conserve water and keep the garden looking neat and tidy!

The reasons to get a Magical Flame Hydrangea are stacking up in its favor. Order yours today. Don't wait, they'll go fast!
