Why is it White when it was Purple?

The white flower may be a "sport" which is a naturally occurring phenomenon, new varieties sometimes come from propagation of "sports". I once witnessed a white flower on one stem of a pink Hydrangea but failed to take a cutting and have never seen said Hydrangea produce another like it, doh!

Just leave it to its own devices now unless it needs some water, the best Philadelphia in gardens I work in are huge and unpruned, the ones that encroach on paths and lawns and have to be pruned never flower as much. One in my Owen garden produces loads of flowers on the sunny side but only half a dozen or so in the shade, which is good for the neighbors but not me!
