Purple, blue, white and pink are typical colors.
The color is thought to be affected by soil pH. An acidic soil will usually produce flower color closer to blue. As there is no pink hydrangeas in our garden, the soil must be acidic.
We have two species of hydrangea macrophylla; H. macrophylla f. macrophylla (Ajisai) and H. macrophylla f..normalis (Gakuajisai).
