  1. Hydrangeas are one of my favorites. I LOVE the way the blooms can change from blue to pink to white, depending on the acidity of the soil (even producing different colored ones on the same plant!).

    When folks who deadhead give me the spent blooms (no garden space here) I dry them to add to garlands and wreaths – especially in my Christmas decor.

  2. Thank you Cee! 🙂

    Madelyn, They are remarkable with their colour-changing properties – we have some ‘blueing powder that is supposed to make the flowers a deeper blue shade but it doesn’t seem to work all that well – i probably don’t use it frequently enough 😉

    I love the idea of using the dried flowers as christmas decorations – they would be perfect! 🙂

    love.

    1. Welcome Ipuna. 🙂

      Hydrangeas sure are not a desert flower! 🙂 They are quite thirsty plants and don’t appreciate the full hot sun that you would get. Our summers here are Very hot and dry also and smaller bushes don’t often survive for long here – they need a nice shady spot.

      love.
