Hydrangea macrophylla 'Izu-no-Hana' in the Japanese Woodland

We have two of these Hydrangeas in the Asian Collections. Everybody loves this plant for it's intense blue color. Most years it's a bit bluer than this but these are the first flowers to open this year so maybe it'll go electric on us later. The other plant is near the GCA Circle and is pink as pink can be. Of course soil acidity is a huge factor in determining the color of Hydrangeas. In general more acid = blue, more alkaline=pink.

The year of the Hydrangea continues.
