Hydrangea macrophylla

Hydrangea macrophylla (Hydrangea macrophylla (Hortensia))

Another lovely hydrangea in fabulous shades of limey-green to purpley-blue. Wonder if when planted it will retain the same shades.

Hi Gloria, yes, bought them yesterday at our garden centre with Mum. Mum's is a lovely deep pink one, which she wants to plant in the same border as one she's had a few years which has every shade under the sun!

Janey I had a pink one as a gift recently and have been told that to make it blue I should use copper sulphate on it , so maybe you have to do the same to keep it blue . !

Thanks Amy, I'll see what colour it turns out to be next year. They have such lovely shades in them don't they?

I have looked through many of your photos so far and I have not seen one that didn't impress me. Your photography work is outstanding.
