I seem to recall seeing a lot of these in English seaside towns, while the ones in cities tend to be either blue or pink, depending on the acidity of the soil, I think, and are totally covered in florets.

For hydrangeas common in U.S. gardens, with ball-like flower heads, that effect of soil acidity on color is well known. I also occasionally see hydrangeas with sparser florets but not the deep purple color.


PRONOUN ADVISORY: OhLook is a she. | A FEW CORRECT SPELLINGS: lens, aperture, amateur, hobbyist, per se, raccoon, whoa, more so | Comments welcome

It seems rarer than the others and is my favourite variety. I've even seen articles on how to change the colour of your hydrangea.

Used tea leaves on the soil around the hydrangea's roots was one method I have heard of.
