Today;s Flowers- Violet Hortensia or Hydrangea in Our Garden

I just bought this flower around two weeks ago. I am buying now winter hard flowers so that they will grow every year after winter time. Hydrangea flowers are produced from early spring to late autumn; they grow in flowerheads (corymbs or panicles) at the ends of the stems. In many species,the flowerheads contain two types of flowers, small fertile flowers in the middle of the flowerhead, and large, sterile bract-like flowers in a ring around the edge of each flowerhead. Other species have all the flowers fertile and of the same size.

Oh, I love the contrasting blues.

I really must keep it in mind when looking for new plants.

That is a lovely shade of blueish purple. It looks like one of the more recent hybrids whose colour is not Ph dependant. Nice choice.
