Flower Of The Month: Hydrangea

Say hello to the hydrangea, a flower that fits any occasion. Festive or a moment of sadness. Its sturdy flower features dozens of papery petals that take on various colours over the course of the year. So, it likes to change with the season. With the beautiful hydrangea you are able to have a piece of summer all year long.

Appearance of the hydrangea

Looking for an eyecatcher in a bouquet? Definitely go with the hydrangea. This robust flower can have a diameter of 25 centimetres! The hydrangea comes in many shapes and sizes. Single or double flowered varieties, globe-shaped hydrangeas, hydrangeas with small flowers in the middle and large petals on the edge (edge bloomers) or hydrangeas with a plume shape. What a range to choose from! Interesting fact: the name hydrangea comes from ‘hydro’ (water) and ‘angeion’ (pitcher), because the hydrangea’s shape is reminiscent of an old water pitcher. Although you need quite a lot of imagination to see it.


In the first half of the year you will mostly see red, pink, purple, white, green and blue hydrangeas, as well as hydrangeas which combine several colours. In the second half of the year the ‘colour-changed’ hydrangea flowers are widely available. These hydrangeas have a green, red, brown tone, which are perfect for autumn and winter.


Many flowers have a symbolism to them, this also applies to the hydrangea. The flower represents different meanings because of the large range of colours:

  • Pink: Linked to romance, heartfelt emotions, love, weddings, and marriage.
  • Blue: Connected to frigidity, turning down a romantic proposal, asking for forgiveness, and expressing regret.
  • White: Known as a symbol of purity, grace, abundance, and bragging or boasting.
  • Purple: Used to indicate a desire for a deeper understanding of someone else or to symbolize abundance and wealth.

So, the hydrangea is perfect for many occasions, like in a luxurious floral arrangement for weddings and birthdays, but equally suitable for an outstanding memorial bouquet.
