They’re timeless and yet on trend. Romantic yet masculine. A flower of luxury, with a nostalgic modesty. A feature in many a sprawling garden or even the smallest city balcony. They bloom in a variety of colours, are impressive in size, and always offer foliage to match. An understated beauty that we simply cannot have enough of.
Have you guessed it yet? Of course, it just must be the hydrangea!
With origins in Japan, the hydrangea has since been cultivated throughout the world for centuries. Popular across Asia, North America and of course, Australia—hydrangeas come in a variety of colours and offer significantly large blooms when cut from a mature, well-nurtured plant.
Pink, purple, green and white. All the colours! Small, medium to enormously large! Rounded flowers to conical towers! Foliage that is bright, light, lime and leafy, or that which is deep and green and speckled with burgundy. With such variety in style and colour, there really is no creative brief, palette or crowd the hydrangea can’t please.
