Hydrangea macrophylla Bloody Marvellous (Merveille Sanguine)
UNIQUE plant. Bloody Marvellous has rich dark chocolate foliage and superb blood-red mophead flowers that gradually turn wine-purple. In Europe this is called Merveille Sanguine which translates as Blood-coloured Marvel. It can be a little tender and does prefer a light shade situation.
