Have you heard? Hydrangeas are back. Bigger and even better than ever, we have carefully curated a guide to help you showcase every stem. From care advice to styling tips, grab attention from now until autumn with this floral wonder.

 

HOW TO MAKE YOUR HYDRANGEAS LAST LONGER

STEP 01

Snip your stems at a 45 degree angle with a pair of our FLOWERBX Floral Scissors. Make a clean cut about 1 inch up the centre of the stem. Hydrangeas love hydration, so this simple act will help your flowers draw maximum water towards their large floral heads.

STEP 02

Hydrangeas emit a sap that begins to seal their stem almost immediately, so getting them into water and away from direct sun is imperative. Choose a vase with plenty of depth as you want to submerge almost the entire stem in water. 

STEP 03

With a single stem in hand, start to arrange your hydrangeas by facing them in the same direction, forming a symmetrical spiral. Opt to keep your stems tall for a towering display, or snip them a little shorter when adorning a tablescape.

STEP 04

As a particularly thirsty flower, hydrangeas absorb water through every part of the plant— stems, leaves, and even petals! You can submerge your hydrangea heads in a bowl of lukewarm water on arrival or if looking a little lacklustre, and continue by spritzing their petals a few times a day while boosting further with a dose of FLOWERBX Flower Food.

HYDRANGEA HOW TO:

FLOWERBX Founder and CEO,  Whitney Bromberg Hawkings, answers your most-asked questions.

When Are Hydrangeas In Season?

Aside from their obvious beauty, one of the best things about hydrangeas is the length of their season. You will start to see summer varieties of hydrangeas appear in late June, evolving in colour and tone throughout the seasons to unveil autumn varieties until the end of November.

How Do Hydrangeas Change From Summer To Autumn?

When summer hydrangeas arrive, they are all about pastel tones and warming brights. Some of my favourite choices as hydrangea season commences are our Sky Blue, Cherry Crush, Pale Plum, and Pistachio varieties - each equally as mood-boosting as the next.

How Can I Style My Hydrangeas?

With hydrangeas, you have two options; tall and towering on a mantlepiece or console table, or trimmed below eye level to adorn shorter vases as part of a seasonal tablescape. Either way, they are sure to turn heads. If you choose the latter, make sure you have coordinating taper candles and your favourite tonal linens on hand to complete the look.
