Limelight and color change

Mayax68(CT)September 22, 2009


The fall is here in CT and I drive by a lot of beutiful PG hydrangea trees. A lot of them turn very pretty burgundy color. Some of them instead of the turning burgundy are turning brownish. I'm in love with the ones that become burgundy. So on the impulse, I stopped by a nursery and bought hydrangea Limelight with pretty green tint on the flowers. Will my Limelight develop burgundy color?

Thank you.

Maya, my Limelight turns from lime to creamy white, and then pink. The blooms don't really turn into a deep burgundy color before they go brown.

Maya - are you referring to the leaves or the flowers?

I'm referring to the color of the flowers.
