The official Long Beach flower

Did you know that the hydrangea is the official Long Beach flower? Neither did I, but according to longbeachhistory.org it is! That’s good news to me; my house is surrounded by them. Represent!

Here is a hydrangea tip: The flower colors are largely dependent on the ph balance of your soil. Do you want blue flowers? Add aluminum sulphate to the soil. Pine needles work too! They make the soil more acidic.
