Hydrangea macrophylla 'Hokomarevo' PPAF

Hi, I'm thinking of buying Hydrangea macrophylla 'Hokomarevo' PPAF in the Spring. My question is: Has anyone else grown these and do they live up to their claims of multiple colors on the blooms? There are supposed to be combinations of deep pink, maroon and blue blooms, all with green highlights as the flowers mature. Some of the photos I've seen look like the big blooms are each a different colors on the plant. Other photos show that each petal has the different colors. Which one is right? Thanks for your help! I'm new here! :)

RE: Hydrangea macrophylla 'Hokomarevo' PPAF

They claim that it is both ways on their advertising. I too have seen it but only in pictures. The shrub was originally designed for cuttings so it is not too tall (3-4' or less), the stems are hard, with very few blooms per stem. Some blooms, on the pictures, were multi-colored (like Harlequin) and (sometimes) slightly different from other nearby blooms. But most pictures seemed to have a good chunk of the plant producing similar blooms. Hard to tell how big the blooms are since these were professionally taken pictures and, if I say that they looked large, it could have been because they got close to the blooms. It is a somewhat new hydrangea; I have not seen it for sale locally or in my frequented hydrangea plant nurseries.

Post pictures and comments if you get one!
