Blue Buds of Hydrangea


Hydrangea is one of my favorite flowers because of their complicated structure! As much as I love the flowers, I also love the budding stage. They are like beads arranging in an orderly fashion.


The buds are blue in these pictures, but when they are flowers, the flowers are light purple with a touch of blue on the petals. They are just gorgeous.


My hydrangea is pink and it is not as healthy as this one that I saw in the supermarket. I'm hoping by next year it will grow a bit more and giving me more flowers to enjoy.

Have a great week, everyone!

  7. They do look like little beads don't they? Mine have not started to bud yet, hopefully soon. I really like all the different shades of color on your last macro.

  9. The hydrangea is such a beautiful flower and it runs such a gamut of colors. In my neighborhood, I've seen several shades from lighter blue to lavender to deeper purple to different ranges of magentas. I love the huge blossoms!

  17. I love hydrangeas. I actually had one growing in my window when I lived in NY and plan on planting one one year.
    Did you know that the composition of the soil affects the hue of the flower? "Flower color of all hydrangeas is affected by the degrees of acidity or alkalinity of the soil in which they grow..." Reader's Digest Success with House Plants
