Hydrangeas

Who can forget the ever-changing blooms of hydrangeas reminding you of litmus paper from science class projects at school. blue in acidic, pink in that with more limey the soil is. Coloured snowball from green white to pink to red to purple, change colours as they age Prefer rich, moist soil that drains easily like everything else.
The botanical name ´Hydrangea´ is derived from a Greek description of the shape of the seed heads, which were thought to resemble Greek water vessels. ´Hydor´ translates as ´water´, and ´angeon´ means ´vase´ or ´vessel´ but bears no resembles to a Greek vase ´Hydria´ (Water Vessel), nor do hydrangea require any more water than any other deciduous shrub; it doesn´t take its name from the mythical monster Hydra, which had a Snake-like head which the capsule does resemble.
The mop-head and lace-cap hydrangeas descend from plants native to a small area on the east coast of Japan, where native species with normal lace-cap flowers had been grown in gardens for hundreds of years.
Sir Joseph Banks introduced the first hydrangea from a Chinese garden in 1798. This was initially called H. hortensis and later renamed ´Sir Joseph Banks´. From this we get the old name Hortensia. A similar plant landed in France and has bloomed every year since then.
