I've heard if you push rusty nails into the soil around the bush, you will change the acidity of the soil and get different vibrant colors.
Beautiful! What is the name of the flower that is in top background middle pictures next to Life According with Jen and Jer? It is orange tops.That is also different. I like them.
Beautiful hydrangea- I've never had a pink one- always the blue.
so very pretty! so is your new header!
I will be sad to leave mine behind. A new one would make an excellent housewarming gift! hint hint!
Gorgeous flowers! They did very nicely!
It's true about the acidity in the soil. We had a hydrangea for 15 years...it finally fell victim to the drought two years ago. We just couldn't keep it wet enough to withstand the Texas heat. Mine started off blue, and then turned pink. I was told by the man at the nursery that if I wanted to keep it blue, I needed to use a particular type of fertilizer to change the acidity in our soil here. I didn't care if it turned pink. I don't know HOW to get more than one color on one plant though. That's interesting!
Such gorgeous hydrangeas!
