The Dapple Designs Expert Says:

Hydrangea macrophylla can be divided into two different groups - Mop Heads & Lacecaps. Mophead flowers open throughout the inflorescence where as Lacecaps only open on the outer edge of the inflorescence. Mop heads are the most common variety of Hydrangeas and can be seen in many traditional Southern Australian gardens. The flower colour of these medium shrubs are dependent on the Ph of the soil. Acidic soils will produce blue flowers, alkaline soils will produce pink flowers and soils in the neutral range will produce white flowers. Plant them in predominately shady areas of the garden.
