One of the most popular cut flower (can also be dried), hydrangeas come in a vast array of colours, however white, blue and pink varieties are widely grown and available by our South American farms. Most of the coloured varieties are created by altering the soils acidity and aluminium content. Our coloured hydrangeas are sprayed at the farm in the particular colour as requested. It’s good to note, they are sprayed when the hydrangea blooms are not fully opened. This results in a softer/washed out tint versus a pronounced uniform colour. Immature white hydrangeas are harvested when they are still green and sold as mini green. The regular hydrangeas are available in white, natural light blue and natural light pink. Our sprayed variety are regular sided hydrangeas. Jumbo hydrangeas are only available in white.

Hydrangeas need lots of water!! Remove as many unwanted leaves as possible and be sure to give the stem a cut on a 45 degree angle under water and consider cross cuts at the base of the stem/cutting up through its center about 0.5 inch up to increase surface area. Place the hydrangeas in a clean container with plenty of warm water (avoid metal containers as hydrangeas react negatively). Allow hydrangeas to fully hydrate (2-3 days) before using floral foam/Oasis and ensure the foam/Oasis is at maximum water level at all times. If your heads start to drop or droop, try the hot water trick; 1) recut stem as directed above 2) submerge the fresh cut in hot boiling water for 20-30 seconds 3) immediately place the stem back in clean warm water. The blooms should revive back in a few hours. This should unblock the stem and help the flow back up to the blooms.
