The colors of their flowers vary from dark blue to light pink. The pH level of the soil determines the color of their flowers. The flowers bloom with a bluish tint if the soil is acidic(pH level below 7) and pinkish if the ground is alkali(pH over 7). With substantial flower heads, hydrangeas bear an old-school charm in one's garden that is just difficult to resist. Excellent for various types of garden, the gardener's expectations of its blooming colors and sizes seem to have no boundaries.
