Take a look at this: a single large flower on stem - the Hy-pe Avantgarde. Avantgarde's striking appearance gets it noticed everywhere. In your house, in your garden or in a tub on your patio. What's more... the flower gradually changes colour!

The Hy-pe Avantgarde always gets noticed. Its large, single flower on stem gives the Hy-pe Avantgarde a unique appearance. This variety doesn't only give colour to your house and garden, but also to your patio. And, as for the colour! First it's white, then it turns pinkish-blue before changing to red at the end of the flowering season.

Avantgarde is a unique hydrangea because it can flower in all seasons. Dead heads should be removed at the end of the flowering period. About four months later, the Avantgarde will reward you with more bright new colours. How does that happen? Well, the Avantgarde is one of the few hydrangeas which do not need a cooling off period before flowering again.  Hy-pe is truly unique!

Care

Pruning

After your hydrangea has finished flowering indoors you can plant it outside if there is little chance of night frost. Clip back the dead heads by 15 cm. Plant in a nice spot in your garden where the soil is not too dry or in a very large pot on your patio or balcony.

Frost resistance

They are not frost resistant.

Watering

Daily watering is recommended. Only the soil should be kept moist; avoid getting the flowers wet. This can cause burns if the wet flowers are exposed to the sun. A plant with 'dry feet' will have the most attractive flowers.

Soil type and fertilisation

It is best to plant Hy-pe hydrangeas in a special potting mix for hydrangeas. Your local garden centre is sure to have this special soil mix in stock. This plant flowers abundantly, therefore good fertilisation is very important. Do this in spring and autumn. 
The blue flower is originally pink. The acidity of the soil gradually turns the plant blue. The less lime and phosphate present in the soil, the bluer the flower. Special fertilisers for hydrangea influence the colour. 
Fertilisation is not necessary during the first year. 

Temperature

The ideal temperature is between 15 and 25 Celsius. 

Sun

A partially shaded sunny spot for the most attractive plant. Never plant white hydrangeas in full sun; the leaves will turn brown.
