These hydrangea bushes are in the Bethesda, MD, garden of friends, and they’re just a small part of the wonderful expanse of blooming bushes that my friends cultivate. For bright blue blossoms, the soil must be kept acidic.

    I love hydrangeas and am growing some of my own. I bought the Nikko Blue variety and they are bi-colored, part blue and part pink. I guess that means my soil is neutral?

    I’m no expert, Annie, but I imagine that it’s a matter of getting plant food with the right pH to make them either pink or blue, whichever you want.
