Add In More Flowers
Draw even more flowers to be behind the first ones.
Fill In The Gaps
Fill in the rest of the gaps with more flowers, and round out the clump of flowers by making it an oval shape.

Hydrangeas are a popular plant for many gardeners. They grow well in shade and full sun, and they’re not too picky about the soil PH (more on this in a moment 🙂
However, hydrangeas do have one quirk: changing their color depending on the acidity of soil.
Hydrangeas attract attention with their wide range of intensely saturated colors, including blue, pink, red and lavender.
One quirk that makes them different from other plants is their color diversity. It largely depends on the acidity levels in the soil. That’s right, the color of the flower is highly dependent on the PH level of the soil in which they are planted!
When starting out with red / pink colored-hydrangeas a common mistake gardeners make is over-fertilizing with acidic fertilizers. This leads to highly acidic soil that can turn your hydrangea blue. Instead, you want to mix in the right kinds of organic matter with your compost or fertilizer so your soil remains neutral. Then, just wait for your flowers to bloom to the color of your choosing!
The previous example is all assuming you want your Hydrangeas to stay in the pink-ish color range of course.
What you see may not be what you get!
When picking out hydrangeas based on their color from the store keep all of this in mind when bringing them home to plant around your yard. The acidity level of the soil in your yard will ultimately determine the long-term color of the flowers!
