Hydrangea macrophylla 'Magical Crimson'
A compact grower, whose apple green, lace-edged flowers open with a tinge of red. But, like a chameleon running from green apples to cherries, the blooms quickly become red all over. Strong stems and dark green leaves provide the perfect foil for ever-changing colors. Crimson ages to green with red highlights.
