Power and Beauty Go Hand in Hand

Despite its delicate appearance, the Jewel is extremely strong. This compact plant can grow up to a meter high and adds a touch of surprise to your terrace with pink or blue flowers that gradually change into a deep red color. Therefore, it stays beautiful until far into those cold autumn days. Its sturdy stems keep the heads firmly high, even when the weather turns against them and throws some rainstorms on their heads. The new hydrangea sort is ideal for the balcony and terrace, but it also lives up to its name in the garden.

Color-changing Hydrangea

A color-changing hydrangea that lives up to its name in your garden, balcony, and terrace. Extra striking about the magical series is that during the flowering period the flowers change color three times. Exactly the same applies to this new Jewel, it changes color from spring to autumn. Curious how this works? The lighter the location that you place it in, the stronger the color change. What starts as a green-pink Magical Jewel turns into a romantic shaded dark red and green plant in autumn. The color-changing effect is not visible every day, but very gradually during the summer and late summer - until the first night of frost.
