"Cotton Ball" Seeds Or Starts

I would like a start or seeds to plant a flower that I don't know the name of but I will describe it the best I can. It is about the size of a grapefruit, and it comes in pink, blue, white, and I don't know what other color. I think it's name is cotton ball, or popcorn ball or something like that. I really want some of these flowers. Could someone out there figure out what I am trying to say and maybe tell me where to get a start or some seeds? Thanks so much.

Maybe you are referring to a flowering "onion" called Allium. They are a blub. Try this site to see pictures.

Sounds like a hydrainth to me .The color depends on the type of soil Mine are blue and i put limestone rock in the bed which made my cedar bush come back to life.

I agree, I think you might be referring to a hydrangea bush. You can get them as a potted plant at garden centers. They're usually blue, but the color is dependent on the kind of soil you have, and I've heard you can change the color by adding different things. I planted one in too sunny and dry of a spot, and it eventually died after a few years without blooming much. A friend tells me that a more shady spot with moist soil is best... live and learn, huh?

I agree about snowball-- a type of hydrangea-- grow quite well here in zone 7. They are a prennial ( sp) and can grow tall-- unlike the "normal" hydrangea,, Most here seem to do well on the East side of houses-- so morning sun and afternoon shade.

They are sold at Walmart sometimes-- or Ace Hardware.

good luck

Could it be hydrangea you're looking for? Check out these links:

You might be able to find one at a local nursery or garden center. I picked up one at Lowe's last year.

Hope this helps!
