Maybe it’s a little bit of the time of the year, and maybe a little bit because they’re an everyday classic–but, both, our customers and us, are just LOVING the Hydrangea’s lately! From wedding to sympathy arrangements–they’re such a full, beautiful, flower that add dimension, and spark, to any flower arrangement out there. Whether you’re looking to have an arrangement featuring them delivered, or, would just like to pick up a couple stems for a project of your own–the Hydrangea, in it’s big, billowy, form will make anyone swoon. Since they seem to be so popular lately–we thought we’d share a little fun trivia regarding them!
Did you know…

The grow, in the wild, almost everywhere from Southeast Asia to the Americas.
