Hydrangea Fun Facts

      • With regular changing of the water, cut Hydrangeas can last up to 10 days!
        • Here’s a little fun tale: According to Japanese legend, a Japanese emperor once gifted a woman he loved with hydrangeas because he was neglecting her in favor of business affairs. Because of this story, hydrangeas are said to represent heartfelt emotions, gratitude, and understanding.
        • Hydrangea leaves are poisonous as the leaves release cyanide. However, the Hydrangea species “Serrata” have been used by Buddhists as a sweet tea as part of a cleansing ritual. The tea is said to help treat autoimmune disorders as well as malaria, kidney stones, and enlarged prostate.
        • Did you know that January 5th is Hydrangea? 
        • Hydrangea is of Greek descent. "Hydor" means water and "angos" means jar or vessel. Explaining why hydrangeas need lots of water to survive.
        • Hydrangeas have different meanings according to color: Pink represents love and sincerity, Blue represents forgiveness, White represents boasting or bragging, and Purple represents abundance and understanding.
        • Hydrangeas do not have petals! The beautiful part of the flower that we see as petals are actually sepals or modified leaves to protect the florets.
