Hydrangea by phil_sandford


According to Wikipedia, the Hydrangea is a genus of 70–75 species of flowering plants native to Asia and the Americas. By far the greatest species diversity is in eastern Asia, notably Korea, China, and Japan. Most are shrubs 1 to 3 meters tall, but some are small trees, and others lianas reaching up to 30 m by climbing up trees.

All of my Hydrangeas suffered immensely last year (they love, and need, water, and they saw precious little of it). This is one of the better recovered plants, and as Carole pointed out, it's blue (the rest in the garden are pink) so it's obviously a differnet Ph level soil under the Magnolia

Thanks for dropping by and spending a little time on my project
Love the colour of this Hydrangea.

My mum in law started putting her used coffee grounds under her hydrangea, thinking it would be good compost. The previously pink flowers turned blue, so clearly the acid level in the coffee makes a difference! Very nice soft shot
