General Information

Hydrangea flowers bloom from early spring through late fall. The coloration depends on the pH of the soil. Acidic soil will produce flowers which appear to be blue, neutral pH will produce pale petals, and alkaline soils produce flowers which appear pink to purple. The hydrangea is known as a hyperaccumulator and the change in pigment depends on the amount of aluminum ions present in the soil.
The roots and leaves of certain Hydrangea species are known to have some medicinal value. However, it is also known to be moderately toxic, so ingestion is not recommended.
