Nice hydrangea! I wish mine would be that way too 🙂 – Beautiful artwork!
What is it that people do to them that causes the blooms to turn blue?
These are beautiful, have never planted any but may try them next year.
Ronnie – I enjoy the blue blossoms best. Changing the pink to blue requires adding aluminum to the soil. One simple way is to stick a few rusty nails in the ground around the bush.
Your blooms are lovely! Mine are in a more shady spot and are just beginning to come out. They’re a more mauve color rather than pink.
…and have a wonderful SUMMER!
Thanks Elly, you too!
