Hydrangea macrophylla 'Spike'
From Eastern Asia, Hydrangea (hortensia) is generally used as a shrub but can occasionally be pruned into a tree. Generally deciduous, its flowers change color based on the soil. The more acidic the soil, the more pink the blooms become. When the soil is alkaline, the flowers turn a bold blue color.
Spike is an attention getting shrub with fringed flowers that make it look fluffy and abundant. Blooming in the summer, the Spike will become pink, blue or green if grown in acidic or alkaline soils. The Spike makes a wonderful container plant or boarder, and gains a lot of attention all on its own. The flower heads persist into the fall making this an outstanding specimen in your garden.
