We distinguish between two main groups:
- Fresh hydrangeas
- Classic (colored) hydrangea
Fresh hydrangeas generally have bright colors such as white, blue, pink or purple. With these flowers you have to cut a small piece diagonally from the stem. Then place them in a clean vase, preferably not in the bright sun or above the heating. You can still cut a small piece of the stem of flowers that go limp. The flower will usually recover and pick up again after a few hours.
Classic (colored) hydrangeas have more a green / red / brown tint. They will not go limp quickly and will dry out after a few weeks. Then remove the water from the vase. You can then enjoy these beautiful flowers for weeks, which are also very suitable as dry flowers.
