I've read the Q and A section to see if you had a suggestion on how to keep a "white" Hydrangea white. There are ways to keep "blue" blue and "pink" pink but how do you keep "white" blooms white?

To my knowledge there is no way to whiten the blooms of white hydrangeas. Most of them, such as Hydangea arborescens "Annabelle" are a clean white with a tinge of green and then age to a dusty pink and finally golden brown. This is their normal coloration and aging process is not affected by pH.
