Hydrangeas - Why to Buy Cut Hydrangeas

Imagine a flower that can actually change its color on its own and naturally. Does such a flower really exist? Yes. Hydrangeas change their color depending on their soil and environmental conditions.

As hydrangeas are planted or transplanted to different locations, they can change colors. Their color depends upon the PH level of the soil. Soils with a higher level of acidity produce hydrangeas that are blue, while soils with a neutral PH produce very pale, ivory petals. Alkaline soils generally produce flowers that are pink or purple. Consequently hydrangeas, which are native to both southern and eastern Asia as well as North and South America, come in such a lovely variety of colors that they can easily enhance the color scheme of any home or party. Since each hydrangea blooms to be quite large, a centerpiece can look bountiful with only a handful of hydrangeas.

In addition to the unparalleled beauty of freshly-cute hydrangeas, they can also be used as a long-lasting decoration when dried. In order to dry hydrangeas, start the process after the flowers have begun to age. Leave them in an empty vase to dry - they do not need to be dried upside down unless the stems are very weak. After drying, hydrangeas can be displayed around the house or scattered on tables as part of a centerpiece for a future party.

Hydrangeas need a lot of moisture, morning sun and afternoon shade in order to grow properly. For climates that are nearly always hot and sunny, the best hydrangea to grow is the PeeGee (paniculata) hydrangeas. As long as it has moisture, the PeeGee can grow in a very sunny climate.

Hydrangeas' unique ability to look fabulous in a myriad of forms from fresh to dried, alone or with other flowers, makes them a uniquely versatile flower that will serve most floral needs- a perfect reason to buy cut hydrangeas.
