Floral Love: Hydrangeas

July 22, 2012

We’ve got SO much goodness for you today! This is a continuation of our Floral series; check out our past posts on roses, peonies and tulips.

When bunched together, these gloriously colored flowers that are hydrangeas are luscious and full but maintain a light-as-air appearance perfect for adding to bulk to bouquets, floral arrangements or simply anywhere in need of a flourish. Some great examples of hydrangea magic are below, from the floral-stuffed wedding cake, to the hydrangea hedge spilling to the floor, to the gorgeous slice of floral cake with exquisite presentation.

Quick facts about the flower:

  • 100: number of species of hydrangeas.
  • White, blue, red, green, pink and purple: hydrangea colors, which depend highly on the acidity of the flower’s soil.
  • It’s a great filler option for bouquets and arrangements.
  • Hydrangeas are scentless.

Enjoy the inspiration!
