Day 95: Hydrangea

Hydrangea ©Jackie Brooks “The garden hydrangea has a wonderful quality of changing from pink to blue, according to the soil in which it is grown. We have wanted the power to change the colors of flowers ever since Pliny suggested soaking seeds or bulbs in wine to achieve this. Garden hydrangeas will turn from pink to blue if the soil is acid and if aluminum is available to them, but it still seems rather magical, and when they were first introduced it was inexplicable.” (To read more about this flower click here)

  1. My favourite colour for sure Jackie. Interesting info about the acidity level of the soil as to the colour ranges. I never knew that. Thanks for sharing. 😀 ♥
