We are moving soon and I was upset that I might not get to see my hydrangea bushes bloom. Well, guess what? They both have bloomed and they are beautiful. I am so happy. They are the blueish ones. My absolute fave. I plan to take some cuttings tomorrow and put some in a vase for my window above my kitchen sink.
Did you know the ph level of the soil is what determines if they are blueish or pinkish? If the soil is acidic they are blue and if the soil is alkaline they are pink. I thought that was so fascinating. We didn't do a soil test when we planted these. We just planted them and I hoped for the best.
We have lived in this house for five years and this particular hydrangea below finally bloomed. It's and oak leaf hydrangea. When we first moved here we thought it was on it's way out, but we would prune it and water it when necessary and now look at it. It has such pretty white cone shaped flowers.
