Three years ago we planted several Blushing Brides in a church cemetary. They were great the first year and the second but by the end of last year they were opeing a pale blue. They are light blue again--to much natural acidity and alum. do you suppose????

RE: Blushing Bride

My 'Blushing Bride' is planted in acidic soil (Red clay) and always has White blooms, with a pinkish tint and matures to pink flower. See link below.
The site even recommends that an acidic fertilizer be used.
That usually means one containing a small percentage of Sulphur(S).

Have you considered that the plants you have were mislabeled?
If they don't produce white flowers upon opening, IMO, you don't have the true BB.
