Hydrangea Growing and Maintenance Tips

All hydrangea naturally undergo some colour change to their flowers as they age. Adjusting the pH balance of the soil can change the flower colour from pink to blue in some cultivars. Most cultivars thrive in full sun to partial shade as long as they have adequate moisture and a rich, well-drained soil.
