Panicle hydrangeas have blooms whose color scheme cannot be controlled by soil pH changes or by amending the soil with aluminum. The varieties typically open with a white bloom or they open green and then turn white. After 1-2 months, the blooms begin a series of color changes that end in brown blooms. The color progression depends on the individual cultivar that you have. Consult the plant label for each variety for detailed information.
