Hydrangeas

Hydrangea Wedding Flowers 

Hydrangeas are a classic old school flower which has come back into trend. Known for its extra large dense flower head and grown locally in amazing colours such as Blue, Purple, Plum, Hot Pink, Blush, White, Green and Autumnal tones. Many brides love Hydrangea as they carry many childhood memories. When the Summer season changes into Autumn the varieties change into moody and multi coloured green, plum and burgundy mixed tones. Not a flower that likes it hot and can wilt easily on hot days. Would not recommend for Bridal Bouquets that will spend a long time in the heat and out of water.  Locally grown from November - May depending on weather/season. Outside of this we source from Sydney.

Available only in Summer from December - May is best. During their peak time, the flower head is full, strong and large in size. Outside of their peak time, would recommend a glass house grown Rose.
