There is no secret that we love hydrangeas at Austen Flowers. Although considered a summer bloom, it is available from early May until as late as mid November sometimes. The blooms are used in wedding bouquets and everyday arrangements. Hydrangeas are beautiful all by themselves, or mixed together with other types of flowers.
The name hydrangea comes from the Greek “hydor,” meaning water, and “angos,” meaning jar or vessel. This roughly translates to “water barrel,” referring to the hydrangea’s need for plenty of water and its cup-shaped flower. With its wooden stems and lacy, star-shaped flowers packed closely together in a pompom, the hydrangea’s color ranges from white to blue to pink and purple.
