Color Me Pink™ and Color Me Blue™ available at garden centers this spring
St. Paul, Minn. (Spring 2009) – Creating great color in your yard should be easy and fun! That’s why Endless Summer® has created Color Me Pink™ and Color Me Blue™ - two new products to help safely change the color of your hydrangeas.
It’s no secret that many bigleaf hydrangeas have the unique ability to change flower color from spectacular pink to beautiful blue depending on soil pH. But for some gardeners, the best way to accomplish the task still remains a mystery. Color Me Pink and Color Me Blue make color changing easier and safer.
Receiving Endless Summer The Original, Blushing Bride or the new Twist-n-Shout™ is like getting two Mother’s Day gifts in one. In addition to providing great color outdoors, blooms can also be cut and brought inside to create a beautiful bouquet. Because all three hydrangea varieties have the unique ability to bloom on old and new growth, these great flowers can be cut without worry - more blooms are always on the way!
Color Me Pink features pelletized Garden Lime and Color Me Blue is pelletized Soil Sulfur – both formulations are safer alternatives to other color changing methods. Both products feature a pre-measured scoop and easy-to-understand directions printed right on the waterproof container.
Color Me Pink™
Color Me Pink™ offers the perfect solution for changing your hydrangea flowers from blue to pink. Using garden lime, Color Me Pink™ safely and effectively changes acidic soils to alkaline for fantastic pink blossoms. Color Me Pink has a suggested retail price of $9.95.
Color Me Blue™
Color Me Blue™ takes your hydrangea blooms from pink to blue. Using Soil Sulfer, Color Me Blue™ lowers the pH of your soil allowing hydrangea varieties such as Endless Summer® The Original to produce glorious blue blossoms. Color Me Blue has a suggested retail price of $12.95.
Be sure to read and follow the package directions. Remember, more is not better when it comes to soil additives.
