219/365 - Hydrangea

This is the hydrangea I posted a photo of (in my Flickr photostream) a day or two ago.

 

This is the only hydrangea I have that reliably blooms every year. The flowers are an unusual color, too-- or at least it seems unusual to me. Instead of the typical blue, pale pink, or even lavender, it starts out in this chartreuse / yellow-green with pink-purple edges, then gradually becomes more and more pink-purple as the flower ages. I know that bloom color in some hydrangeas depends on the pH of the soil, but I'm not sure if that's true for all of them.
