I just love hydrangeas. They come is so many beautiful shades, from gentle white, through to robust dark pink, purple and blue. There are twotypes of hydrangeas. Mop-head flowers are large round flower-heads resembling pom-poms or, as the name implies, the head of a mop. In contrast, lace-cap flowers bear round, flat flower-heads with a center core of subdued, fertile flowers surrounded by outer rings of showy, sterile flowers.

Hydrangea is a genus of about 70 to 75 species of flowering plants native to southern and eastern Asia and North and South America. At Andrea Crawford Flowers we recommend white hydrangeas if you want a romantic flush to your bouquet or one of the many shades of purple through to blue for a more dramatic effect.
