Bi-Color Blooms Summer through Fall

  • Multiple Floral Tones
  • Long Bloom Season
  • Adaptive to a Variety of Conditions
  • Low Maintenance

Tilt-A-Swirl is a mid-to-small sized Hydrangea that is perfect for those semi-sunny environments in your yard that need some extra color throughout the year. Plant a few along your perennial border or near a patio where you're sure to witness their extraordinary display all summer long (and through the autumn season as well).

Hydrangeas have long been a favorite among gardeners, and Tilt-A-Swirl is no exception. Its one-of-a-kind flowers are sure to surprise you repeatedly from summer through fall! Tilt-A-Swirl's blossoms exhibit a multitude of shades that vary from light to dark, and transition throughout the summer/fall seasons for a spectacular floral exposition. Vibrant greens, delicate pinks and scarlet reds "swirl" amid the delicate petals, rarely pausing in their stunning display.

When fall sets in and other plants start to fade, the Tilt-A-Swirl's blooms continue to change colors with the season, lending your yard an extension of summer into the cooler months.

Tilt-A-Swirl Hydrangea, Hydrangea macrophylla 'QUFU', has a mounded habit and low maintenance nature. Tilt-A-Swirl is hardier than most Hydrangeas and can maintain high quality, colorful blooms with less of a need for care and maintenance. While some traditional Hydrangea varieties struggle as a result of harsh winters, your Tilt-A-Swirl Hydrangea is substantially more resilient (even in winters that reach well below zero). Tilt-A-Swirl prefers indirect sunlight (for most of the day), but will still thrive in sunnier spots (with slightly less vibrant coloring).

Tilt-A-Swirl is an award-winning Hydrangea, and it's easy to see why. With its hardy nature, long-blooming performance and unique bi-color flowers, Tilt-A-Swirl is sure to be a show-stopper in your yard this year.
