Hydrangea Care Tips
Hydrangeas are a shrub with flowers consisting of large lush clusters of many blossoms. A fresh hydrangea has most of the flowers in the cluster open, except for the lace cap variety. The hydrangea flower is sturdy and firm to the touch. Aged Hydrangeas have some blossoms on the cluster wilted and the overall head feels soft to the touch.
Please Note: Hydrangeas wilt easily when cut. Hydrangeas benefit greatly from extra care and conditioning for a prolonged vase life. Place the ends of the stems in boiling water, being careful to protect the blossoms. Placed the boiled hydrangea stem approximately 1 inch in powdered alum. Gently tap the extra powder and place the hydrangeas in deep cool water. Drape the bottom of the hydrangea blossoms with a cold wet cloth, keeping the cloth moist by misting frequently during the conditioning period-about 4 hours. This will help harden the hydrangea blossoms.
