    Check this out! My [info=hydrangea]Hydrangea[/info] is blooming with purple, pink and blue flowers! I thought they bloomed either pink or blue? I don't know what is going on with it but I love it!

    Color can be changed by making soil more acidic if you want blue ones. Thats all I know about Hydrangea. I leaned that on here a few weeks ago.

    My question, exactly glendann! :) I've heard of changing the color with adding acid to the soil, but how did I end up with multi-colored ones?
    Also....I just inherited my gardens this Spring when we moved in to this house, so I've done nothing to the soil, they just "happened" this way! :shock:
