Speaking of light blue – did you know? The typical light blue color of hydrangeas is based on an old gardener story. Accordingly, the change in color from the pink hydrangea to the blue hydrangea was only discovered because a journeyman gardener accidentally planted some of the young plants in soil containing aluminum oxide and iron oxide. As a result, alum (aluminum sulfate) was used to color the hydrangeas blue. At this point you have to say that not every type of hydrangea can be colored.
