This horticultural marvel has flowers with three phases of coloration. An award-winning hydrangea, Kaleidoscope's flowers change from soft pastel pink to lime green to dark cherry red, creating a dramatic display. Hydrangeas are impressive when grouped or massed in the shrub border where they provide gorgeous mid to late summer color. Kaleidoscope Hydrangea is also striking when planted as a specimen or accent for foundations. Its blooms make dramatic fresh and dried floral bouquets.
