Why the Tilt-A-Swirl® Bigleaf Hydrangea?

Providing one of the most spectacular summer color rides, the Tilt-A-Swirl® Bigleaf Hydrangea produces blooms that take you on a thrilling journey all season long! The large blooms first open to a lime-green color - not unlike the newly returned lime Skittle! They then transition to hot pink before settling nicely into sweet shade of red. Keep in mind that while the pinks and reds appear, the green remains - creating a gorgeous bicolor swirling bloom to dazzle all summer long! The extra large, deep green leaves turn a bright orange with hints of red and yellow, extending the season of interest past when the blooms have faded! This is one ride you don't want to miss - plant your Tilt-A-Swirl® Bigleaf Hydrangea today and enjoy the ride!

Native to China and Japan, the Hydrangea macrophylla was introduced to Europe and America in the 1800s and has since grown in popularity. The Tilt-A-Swirl® Bigleaf Hydrangea comes to us from The Netherlands, specifically, Horteve Breeding and their head breeder, Cornelius Pieter Eveleens. Corneluis took two varieties of his own hydrangeas and crossed them, collecting the seed when ready. From there, he waited patiently to see the fruits of his labor until he noticed a standout in the bunch. In 2016, the Tilt-A-Swirl® Bigleaf Hydrangea was officially patented and trademarked and has been taking the public on a wild ride since!

How to use in the landscape?

With its sturdy stems, the Tilt-A-Swirl® Bigleaf Hydrangea is an excellent addition to your cut flower garden! It also creates a wonderful low hedge or foundation plant due to its rounded habit. Or simply plant it near your back patio or pool - somewhere you'll be able to enjoy the sensational swirling colors all season long!

How To Plant

Big Leaf Hydrangea grow best when they get full sun for part of the day and shade the balance of the day. Up north where the summers are cooler they like full sun for up to 6 hours each day and as you move south and the summer sun is more intense the less full direct sun is desired. In zone 8 consider 2 hours of full direct sun as ideal.

How To Water

Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water very slowly and very thoroughly. The water needs to reach to the bottom of the root ball and that takes time. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late year. Continue this for three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

Prune your hydrangea right after it flowers to control its size or to tidy things up. Don't prune it hard because those stems will have flower buds for next year!

Planting Zones

Hardiness Zone: 5-8
