Hydrangeas are among the showiest of all the flowering shrubs. Versatile and generally easy to care for, this beautiful shrub will dazzle any landscape. 'Everlasting(™) Crimson', sometimes called 'Hortmagicri,' is a wonderful way to set apart a garden path or draw attention to an area. It has all that classic cottage and woodland garden style you'd expect from hydrangea, but the blooms on this cultivar are especially striking and provide new splashes of colour throughout the season.
From late spring to late summer, blooms will transition through beautiful a series of beautiful colours, from apple green and bright pink to a richly impressive rich, deep red by late summer. When all the other summer showstoppers are fading, this one gives you a blast of colour in a difficult shade to find on hydrangea. You don't get a rich red on a hydrangea easily. You'll have no problem showcasing Everlasting Crimson as it stays compact and develops strong stems that keeps the flowers upright. It also blooms on old and new wood, so an unexpected spring freeze won't damage all your developing buds.
