Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

The trend in Hydrangeas today is often referred to as “gift-to garden”, which means the giver presents the plant as a gift and the receiver eventually plants it in a container or in the garden for a lasting memory of the considerate gift.  So, if you’re looking to be a part of this new trend, Magical Ningbo should be top on your list as a gift-to-garden Hydrangea! Lime-green mop-head blooms open with a tinge of pink – quickly turning rose-red all over. A compact variety with strong stems; dark-green, glossy leaves provide the perfect canvas for clusters of hard, red blooms that continue to delight all summer. As the flowers age, they turn from red to green and take on a vintage appearance. As a gift, Magical Ningbo will lighten up a place on a porch or patio and will easily transition to the garden where it can be enjoyed for years to come.

Note: Flower color can also be blue, depending on the pH of your soil.
