A Background on Hydrangeas

Anyone who appreciates flowers knows that hydrangeas can be elusive. Somehow these flowers seem to last fine in a store, but the moment you get them home, they quickly start to wilt. So what are the flower arrangement tricks to keep your hydrangeas fresh longer?

  1. Hydrangeas drink water directly from their flowers. So get out a spritz bottle, and hydrate those flower petals.
  2. When you get your hydrangeas, give the flowers a fresh cut. One of the flower arrangement tricks for hydrangeas is to cut a deep diagonal at the stem and clean out the white bits. Alternatively, you can take a hammer and lightly smash the stems. This will help your hydrangeas hydrate faster.
  3. Hydrangeas drink a lot of water. You’ll need to give fresh cuts often as well as spritz the hydrangea leaves.
