: will soil conditions lighten or darken the blooms?
: for example the hydrangea colors can be changed or enhanced by adding certain chemicals (which will give them more or less nitrogen etc.)
: Can this be done for crepe myrtles?

No, not with crepe myrtle. The conditions that cause the change in hydrangeas are acid or alkaline soil.
