DIFFERENCES IN LENGTHS OF HYDRANGEA
Hydrangeas come in many different varieties and lengths, even though originally the flower herself isn’t that tall. You may wonder how breeders create such length? We’ll tell you the secret!
When buying Hydrangea, some may have an older wooden stem at the bottom. The flowers are grown on old wood, so the Hydrangea simply is just a bit longer. This is how the extra length is created. The lenght of the wooden stem can differ a lot. This doesn’t make a difference in the quality of the flower, according to the growers and a research study by Royal FloraHolland. The quality of the size of the fluffy head is no different than a Hydrangea without old wood.
FRESH COLOURED Hydrangea
The Hydrangea is not only available in different sizes, but also in tons of different colours. Hydrangeas are pretty lively. The light coloured varieties of Hydrangea are called ‘fresh’, as they have a fresh, young colour.
The most famous fresh varieties are dazzling white, romantic pink and joyful purple. Other varieties are green, red and blue.

CHARMING HYDRANGEA INSPIRATION
The delightful Hydrangea has all the characteristic of the ideal romantic flower. No wonder why she represents love, harmony and peace. As the ‘fresh’ varieties come in countless soft colours and have a luxurious appearance, she is a popular guest at weddings or other festive events. Therefore, we came up with three different inspiration styles with the different colours:
Floral style #1 Dazzling White
Large bulging flower heads with a touch of other small flowers give the Hydrangea her charm: she is known for being a sight for sore eyes. By keeping all flowers in the same colour with a hint of green, you can create a dazzling white look.
Floral style #2 Romantic Pink
Hydrangeas are known for their lush blooms that add colour and warmth to any floral arrangement. But, have you ever taken a closer look at the delicate individual flowers? That’s right a few stems of one Hydrangea variety is more than enough to create a romantic pink bouquet.
Floral style #3 Joyful Purple
Keeping in mind, the Pantone colour of the year, you can create a trendy wedding look by using joyful purplish Hydrangeas. The luminous ultra violet colour will with no doubt catch the attention of your loved-ones.
