With their large architectural leaves and vibrant colours, it's no wonder that Hydrangeas are still popular!

There is a Hydrangea for everyone with colours ranging from clear blues, vibrant pinks, frosty whites, luscious lavenders and even fresh lime greens.

They thrive best in a moist, but well drained soil, in a cool, semi-shady part of the garden. They won’t perform very well in east-facing sites, where cold winds can damage new growth and nor will they do well in dry, sunny spots.

Originating from a woodland situation, they need plenty of organic matter when planted and benefit from an annual mulching. Good products to use are well-rotted leaf-mould, garden compost or composted bark.

It's common for the flower colour to naturally change in the late summer. Blue and pink flowers fade to become combinations of green and pink/red whilst white flowers typically become a vibrant pink. This is a natural seasonal change and be assured, the natural colour will return the following year.

However, it is possible to change the colour of the lacecaps and mopheads. Hydrangeas are sensitive to soil pH, which affects aluminium availability and produce blue flowers in acidic conditions and pink flowers in alkaline conditions.

By adjusting the pH of the soil, by adding lime to make it more alkaline for example, the flowers will naturally respond. If you want to grow blue varieties on alkaline soil, you should use a hydrangea colorant product which adds aluminium to the soil, thus ensuring bright blue blooms.
