Most of Japan experiences a rainy season, usually starting from around June until mid-July. This also coincides with when many hydrangeas start to bloom, linking the flower to rain in Japanese culture.
Interestingly, there are only two true colors of hydrangea: white and pigmented. The color of the pigmented ones varies depending on the pH of the soil, giving them a blue, pink, or purple hue.
