Buy Hydrangea macrophylla Glam Rock ('Horwack') (PBR) hydrangea: Each flower is made up of three luscious colours

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, moderately fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    One of the most colourful of the new breed, this hortensia hydrangea produces impressive clusters of flowers, each of which consist of three colours. Like many hydrangeas, the flower colour will vary depending on the soil type, but primarily they are a hot pinkish red with a bluish purple eye (when grown in acidic soils) and splashes of lime green at the petal tips. If you want a showy and long-flowering shrub, then you won't be disappointed.

  • Garden care: Leave the old flower heads in place through the winter. As the new shoots start to emerge in spring cut back a third to a quarter of the previous seasons flowering stems to the base and cut back the remaining flower heads to the first pair of buds.

Still struggling to take hold, Not a strong specimen and very small (so far at least) for a Hydrangea.

Lovely bright colour and I love all the new varieties. Crocus' plants are always healthy, and website is very informative.

Have loved hydrangeas all our lives. They have always been my husband's and my favourite flowers, we have gone from having large gardens too now having a small block paved area in which we keep tubs all hydrangeas. All with the exception of 3 were bought from crocus. We feed them and look after them they now have heads like buckets.Everybody comments on them.

Although I have only had this Hydrangea a short while it did boom this year, but I am sure it will be even better in 2017 now it is established. Easy to grow. Please note without ticking "cons" box you will not accept this review. I have no cons myself.

We have purchased a glam rock hydrangeas we have planted it in a large container with john innes no3 as per instructions. But it has flowered with just bright pink blooms not lime green and blue as well .Is this normal for a young plant or do I need to add some thing to the container to get multi colour blooms

Hello, Like all the macrophylla hydrangeas, the flower colours will vary depending on the soils pH. There is nothing you can do for this years flowers, however I would apply hydrangea colourant at regular intervals to get the best colour effect. http://www.crocus.co.uk/product/_/growing-success-blue-hydrangea-colourant/classid.200303/
