How to dry hydrangeas and preserve their colorful blooms

Knowing the best techniques to dry hydrangeas will let you preserve these colorful blooms for months if not years

Hydrangeas are a sight of summer – their colorful blooms lining borders in shades of pink, blue, white and purple. Those in the right climates might be lucky enough to get a second flourish later in the season or come fall.

If you’ve been deadheading hydrangeas throughout their growing season, and finding it hard to part with those lovely blooms, drying hydrangeas is the perfect way to keep these beautiful flowers present in your surroundings.

It’s simple to do, pretty quick and very on-budget. Not to mention, dried flowers need zero upkeep so they make great low-maintenance additions to a thriving indoor plant display. And while their color may become more muted, they add wonderful texture to your scheme.
