Every Georgian is familiar with the giant, blue blooms of the hydrangea that bless everyone with their whimsical, snowball-like appearance each summer. They are beautiful, and the blooms last long into late summer/early fall months. But what about pink hydrangeas? Sometimes, hydrangeas exist in a multitude of colors from pink to blue. More importantly, you can control your hydrangea bloom color by controlling the pH of the soil.
If you live on the 30 percent of Georgia that exists between the mountainous north and the coastal plain south, you live in the Piedmont region. Piedmont, loosely translated, means “the foothills” in Latin. It perfectly characterizes the rolling hills and plateaus of this region that are butted up against the Blue Ridge Mountains.
