Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:
Captivatingly beautiful and ruffled like the skirt of a Flamenco dancer, this Hydrangea commands center stage. Frilly, white flowers are picoted with a complimentary red edge and are enhanced by dark, coppery leaves. As the season progresses, flowers mature to a soft green color with red edges and are perfect for cutting. A strong, vigorous grower, add Magical Flamenco to your favorite garden space and make sure you leave plenty of room to dance!
Pruning: For best results and more flower power, prune to shape in late summer, and then do not prune dead wood until you see new growth in the late spring/early summer.
