Hydrangeas bloom in all colors

Summer flowers are blooming in gardens throughout the country, and some of the more popular bulbs are hydrangeas, according to the Asbury Park Press.

These beautiful summer flowers are at their peak in the season, as they are in full bloom in pink, blue, and lavender colors.

Over the past 20 years, the idea of hybridizing these blooms has come into effect. Now, several different colors develop for these flowers, the news provider reports.

"A big change has been the Endless Summer (collection), which reblooms, so there isn't a first blush of color that then fades," Sandy Jones, the president of American Hydrangea Society, told the news source. "The secret to extending the season more is to cut off the old blooms as they fade and the new ones come up."

According to the Benicia Patch, hydrangeas are easy to plant and maintain. But, enthusiasts should remember that they grow larger than expected and they have large roots. Therefore, make sure not to keep them in pots for an extended period of time.
