Can anyone beat this for autumn colour?


Can anyone beat this for autumn colour? (Hydrangea Macrophylla Quadricolour)

Hydrangea quadricolour has been in its autumn finery for ages and I just love it. It's beautiful all year (apart from when leafless) and has been in this pot for years. I'm going to give it a new pot once its leaves finish and look forward to an even better display next year. it even has pretty lacecap flowers, only 2 this year because, I think ,it needs looking after better, but next year........:-)

Thanks for all your kind comments:-) Many moons ago in my old garden I planted hydrangea tricolour, it didn't last long. This is far hardier and far more beautiful I may try to take cuttings but will have to find out how and when. It is so variegated and I believe it is hard to get cuttings to take because of lack of chlorophyll and if you take cuttings from those stems showing more green, then the new plants will not be so variegated. Does anyone know if this is so?
