The hydrangea is a flower that perplexes me. I am aware it blooms in different colours due to the level of PH in the soil (more alkaline, towards the blue end of the spectrum; more acid, the pink end – or is it the other way around?) but I am surprised by the number of hydrangea bushes that I see that have a full range of colours. I just don’t understand how that can happen?
Oh, I am aware it is not a wild flower. Work with me as I evade categories here.
And I never knew there were different types of hydrangea; although, I guess, I can extrapolate because there are different types of almost everything, so why not hydrangea?
