Ask a gran. Flower identification.

Can any of the keen gardeners amongst the group identify these flowers? (Picture attached.)

Saw them on holiday frequently by the coast in Scotland and I’d love to try some for my garden.

looks like hydrangea to me?

It’s a lace cap geranium. Beautiful. I intend to put one in my garden next year.

Not geranium!! Hydrangea!! I have geraniums on the brain at the moment as I have been deadheading them!

Yes, hydrangea serrata. On neutral or alkaline soils the flowers will be pink. On acid soils they are blue.

Thank you very much. Off to source one on the Internet.
Much appreciated
