Red Hydrangea Turned Purple

Ii brought a red hydrangea on my holiday in Daylsford. I brought it home and sat it on my bench in its original pot and watered it the very next day. It turned purple why?

Hello!
The change of shade is natural but traveling is not something plants really enjoy so maybe it aged the flower a bit quicker than usual. Anyway with maturity the red flowers of hydrangea fade to shades of purple. They always do.

All you have to do now is wait for a new flower and check how long its red shade will last. This changing of shade is what makes hydrangeas so interesting if you cut them and make dry bouquets.
