What to know about hydrangea care?
Hydrangea flowers are very needy. In fact, “hydra” is Greek for water, and “angos” is Greek for vessel, which translates to “water barrel.” This meaning refers to the hydrangea flower’s need for water, so adequate hydrangea care is essential in order to maintain it’s perfectly shaped blooms. Hydrangea care for potted hydrangeas is simple. All you need to do is keep the soil moist to prevent the luscious petals from drying out. However, make sure water doesn’t build up on the bottom of the pot. To do so, poke holes in the bottom if it’s wrapped in foil, or place the pot on a saucer. Additionally, make sure your hydrangea bouquet is receiving plenty of sunlight. Hydrangea care for vase arrangements is also easy. Just make sure the vase is filled with water and the stems are cut at an angle in order for your hydrangea flower arrangement to get enough H2O.
How long do hydrangea flowers last?
Hydrangeas are a gift that keeps on giving. Why? Because they have an extremely long lifetime! These old-fashioned blooms can last several weeks in a vase. If they’re planted or potted, they continue to replace old blooms with new ones throughout the growing season. Hydrangea flowers are also perfect for drying. Dried hydrangeas can still retain their original color and shape, making them perfect for preserving and decorating your home. To dry hydrangea flowers, all you have to do is cut the leaves off the stem and air dry them upside-down for a few days. After that, your hydrangea arrangement will be ready to be placed in a vase and flaunt their beauty for years to come.
