Hortensia - Hydrangea macrophylla

Hortensia - Hydrangea macrophylla

Hydrangeas come in colours ranging from white, pink, red, mauve, purple, violet and blue. Apparently the colour is related to the soil ph with acidic and alkaline soils. Refer to the link to the US National Arboretum for more information on this as well as how you can change the colour of your flowers by changing the ph balance in the soil.
