  • Quantity Help

The Good: Size, size, size! Hydrangeas take up so much space and a must-have for large arrangements. They also have a long vase life and can be pretty hardy.

The Bad: The water factor and they do not like extreme heat. Hydrangeas need a solid water source, so although they are often used in bouquets they will need to be place back into water when they are not being held. They are often used in foam work, but wet foam doesn't supply enough hydration for long periods of time therefore it's best to place the hydrangeas in the foam the day-of the event and use Alum.

  • Give the stems a fresh cut, and place in cool water.
  • Remove leaves below waterline.
  • Hydrangeas are WATER LOVERS so fill buckets over half full. If using in floral foam, best to place your hydrangeas the day of and dip cut stems in Alum before sticking into foam. Alum is a preservative sold in the spice section of a grocery store.
