Hydrangeas: Flower Focus

by Bethany Day on August 1, 2012

Hydrangea PlantWith their unmistakable mop-shaped heads and showy blooms, hydrangeas are a cottage garden classic. Big, bold and beautiful these lovely flowers come in a myriad of different shades making them a popular choice for brightening up the home.

One of the wonderful things about hydrangeas is their ability to change colour as they grow. Fully coloured hydrangeas, which are greenish with hints of other colours within, are known as ‘classic’. Young hydrangeas, which have not matured to that stage, are known as ‘fresh’.

The following designs show just how versatile the hydrangea is and why it has become such a popular choice for interior designers.

Green Hydrangea

These green classic cut hydrangeas are framed by a collar of begonia leaves which complement the curvaceous flowers perfectly. The effect is crisp and contemporary.


This stunning wreath showcases the many different colour varieties of hydrangeas. Here they interspersed with unripe cotinus fruits and red dill.


This sensational display is created using cut hydrangea heads arranged in a rainbow of colour.


These pure white hydrangeas create a stylish table display. Place settings created from single flower heads and tied with dramatic black ribbon add the essential finishing touch.
