i had no idea!!

living in the south i have seen hydrangeas blue, pink, purple, lavender, white, green even a muted burgundy but never this!!! bright red?!?! are we just missing something in our soil to achieve this color? unbelievable. i love it. blue is still my favorite. but THIS!!! this red is fabulous. i could see these growing in masses outside a white house with black shutters and a provencal blue door.

You can adjust the color of hydrangeas by changing the acidity of the soil. Add lime or ______ (I can't remember right this second what the other thing is - I think it's maybe sulphur). That takes them from pink to blue, so this may be some man made special variety.
