Avantgarde is a unique long-flowering Hydrangea with truely enormous blooms, making it the Worlds largest flowering Hydrangea. Characterising Avantgarde are its large dark leaves and huge umbel of flowers with a minimum diameter of 30cm. Our plants have Huge Flower Heads, around 40cm across at their seasonal peak, and look very dramatic.
The plant reaches a height of up to around 80-100cm tall. The flower is white at first, and then becomes a very light pink colour. When the mop head is fully in bloom, it will not weaken or fall, but become a green colour, and finally it will often age to a dramatic autumnal red shade. When the flower is removed, a new flower appears after a few weeks, so you can enjoy Avant Garde continually through the year.
The enormous blooms will cover sturdy multi-branched plants, but if you remove side branches and grow as a single stem, the blooms get even larger. Each spectacular bloom remains for over 2 months, changing colour through shades of white, pink and finally lime green. Strong stems make these stunning hydrangea flowers ideal for cutting and ensure that the blooms won't flop - even after rain! An eye-catching shrub for borders or large patio containers.
During Summer, our Hydrangea Avant Garde Plants are supplied with a huge flower, upto 40cm across. Through the remainder of the year they're supplied as green plants. Large and strong in approx 5 litre containers.
