How cool is that? Styrch says: July 8th, 2011 at 5:57 am I have the white Anabell types at my house. These are pretty, but to me they look a little like pink hydrangeas that didn’t quite get enough nitrogen (I think that’s the right chem) to turn fully blue. But either way, fun! Reply Marian says: July 8th, 2011 at 8:12 am Those are so pretty! …so old fashioned. They always remind me of my childhood. We called them snowballs. Reply Annette says: July 8th, 2011 at 9:17 am Gorgeous! For what it’s worth, they’re purple because the soil has a neutral PH. they will be blue in acidic soil and pink in alkali soil. 🙂 Reply Sarah S. says: July 8th, 2011 at 11:15 am Ah, does Japan have acidic soil? They are especially gorgeous and vibrant in Japan! They are called “Ajisai” I think… Reply Cindy (Prime Beauty) says: July 8th, 2011 at 12:32 pm LOVE Hydrangeas, but they are so hard to grow!
