Pink and Purple

I love how Endless Summer hydrangeas tell you about the pH your soil by displaying either pink or blue blooms. Alkaline soil produces pink flowers. Acid soil produces blue flowers. I have some purple, some pink, but most of my blooms are pink with some purple accents. Yesterday evening, they were all ready for their close-ups.

Love them! I want to get some endless summer ones to put next to the carport in the backyard. Lowes finally has some last I looked.

Beautiful! I still don't have any hydrangeas in my yard. I did try to root a cutting from the neighbors yard but alas, it rotted.

I hope mine looks that pretty one day. I love the color of yours. Here the soil is pretty acidic so almost all of my Hydrangeas are blue unless they are supposed to be pink. Really pretty closeups!

I love Hydrangeas pink and purple! I'd like to get some from our local nursery soon when the budget allows! I recently moved to the CA mountains and heard Hydrangeas do well up here.
