Actually, all hydrangea flowers are green! The sepals will often turn colors such as white, pink, and blue, but will always start, and end green. There is a variety that is called Limelight, that will bloom later, and retain its green for longer. This would be where I would start.

Here is an article to help explain what causes the green flower, and how you can keep it green: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/hydrangea/green-hydrangea-blooms.htm
