I have lovely blue hydrangeas in my Massachusetts garden, and I'm wondering if I can make them look like the multi-colored deep blue-purplish-pink ones I see in lots of gardens? Thanks.

Although many of the bigleafed hydrangeas will change color in response to the soil pH, some have been bred to remain a constant color, or relatively so, over a range of soil pH. If your interested in maintaining some to have a Pink color, you might look into some of the varieties selected for steady (or almost always) pink coloration such as "Forever Pink" or "Pink Elf" or "Pia" or "Glowing Embers" among others. Hope this helps and good luck!
