Pot Of Hydrangeas
Hydrangeas are popular as needlepoint projects. There are over seventy species of hydrangeas, and they are available in so many gorgeous colors! Hydrangeas act as natural pH indicators. Their flowers turn blue when the soil is acidic, and pink when the soil is alkaline. Because of this, the Hydrangea is also known as the “Change Rose." The symbolism behind the hydrangea flower differs with culture and time period. In Japan, hydrangeas are said to be a sign of gratitude because ancient emperors would give them to their maidens as a sign of thanks. On the other hand, Victorians believed that hydrangeas symbolized boastfulness or vanity because they produce so many blooms but drop little seed to share. Each hydrangea color also has a meaning behind it: Pink represents love and sincerity. Blue represents forgiveness. White represents boasting or bragging. Purple represents abundance and understanding. People love this plant so much, there's a day dedicated to it. Hydrangea Day is January 5. However, the flowers are out of season at that time of year
