Why do we love hydrangeas so much? Is it their romance? The astonishing variety of hues in a single flower? (A single petal, even!) Or is it that, like fresh strawberries, sailboats and a long ribbon of beach, they simply evoke summer?
Most hydrangea varieties originated in Asia (in Japan and Korea they make hydrangea tea—who knew?). The pink hydrangea is quite popular there, and when given to another can mean, "You are the beat of my heart,” as described by florist Tan Jun Yong. Now there’s a hydrangea-loving man after our own heart!
Brides in search of “something blue” will love the Vera Wang collection. If you can’t get enough of blue in all its hues, here's plenty of blue, floral, and hydrangea designs, or, you can visit one of our retailers.
Praise the hydrangea! Sing the blues! And hooray for sweet summer.
