Hy­drangeas are nat­u­ral chameleons:

they can change their flower colour de­pend­ing on the acid­ity of the soil. For pinker blooms, ap­ply lime. For deeper shades of blue, ap­ply alu­minium sul­fate (con­ve­niently sold as Hy­drangea Blue­ing Tonic). White va­ri­eties such as Bridal Bou­quet are less in­clined to change.
