But hey, let’s give the hydrangea Christmas love a little break and get on some hydrangea facts that’ll surprise you this merry season! Here they go…
Did you know Hydrangea means ‘water vessel’ in Greek? The name hydrangea comes from the Ancient Greek words for ‘water vessel’, ‘hydor’, and ‘angos’. This was chosen as the seed capsules on hydrangeas resemble cups. However, it’s a fitting name in another way - hydrangeas love water, and as cut flowers, they tend to be quite thirsty.
The colors are all down to chemistry. For certain varieties of hydrangea, the color of the bloom depends on the chemical makeup of the soil. Acidic soils will produce blue or purple flowers, whilst alkaline soils create pink or red petals.
Hydrangeas are native to Asia & America. There are over 70 species of hydrangea and most of these are native to eastern Asia including Japan, China, and Korea. They have been cultivated in Japan for centuries - they’re mentioned in poetry from as long ago as 710 A.D and depicted in antique paintings. They have huge cultural significance in Japan and are often planted in the gardens of Buddhist temples.
Dried hydrangeas can last for years! For the most part, hydrangeas will last about 10 days in a vase, as long as you replenish their water regularly. But with just a little extra effort, hydrangeas can actually last much much longer. All you need to do is dry them.
To do this, place them in a vase with just a few inches of water and then just leave them alone. The hydrangeas will dry over a few weeks as the water evaporates. Once they’re dried, they can last for a year or two. Dried hydrangeas can be quite fragile, so try not to move them about too much as they can break apart.
