A great new introduction, Tuxedo® hydrangeas are a stunning range of mophead Hydrangeas, with deep-purple flushed foliage. Compact in habit, they are a perfect long flowering plant happy to be left inside while they flower, or planted outside in a pot or the garden.
Free flowering, very compact mounding bush with dark purple leaves, they are very different from most other modern hydrangeas. Perfect as a flowering houseplant, but if you wish to plant outside after they have finished blooming, they can delight you for years to come. They make perfect landscape plants for shady areas of the garden or where they receive filtered light.
