We've Got the Blues | Hydrangeas

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.

Isn’t our New Blue Correspondence Card summer fresh? The hydrangea envelope liner smiles at the endless varieties of the hydrangea palette. Click here to personalize. You may also like its companion Blue Calling cards.

Our boxed Engraved Watercolor Hydrangea Notes (left) are a surprising combination of delicate watercolor art accented with gold engraving. These Blue Hydrangea Blooms boxed notes and correspondence cards (right) with green lattice envelope liners are like a breeze off the shore. Is there a hostess who wouldn’t love receiving a box of either of these summery notes?

One of our artists created this hydrangea etching in the classic scratchboard method. Find loads of blue and hydrangea designs here, or visit one of our retailers.

  1. Wow..those blues really pop and show the exact texture of the paper. Blue is one of those colors that looks very well with almost anything. I enjoyed reading your blog and I especially love your choice of colors for the season.
