Knowing how to take care of hydrangeas in a vase can make a room feel alive. These dreamy, cloud-like blooms may be famously hated by Madonna, but we think they bring a bucolic beauty to even the most urban and modern of homes. And while an elegant choice is a bountiful bouquet of hydrangeas, it doesn’t even need to be a bouquet. A few single stems of this blousy plant is enough to create a fabulous floral display.
‘Hydrangeas are one of my favourite flowers,’ says florist, Judith Blacklock of Judith Blacklock Flower School. ‘I’m happy with just one in a slim cylinder vase; cut so that it is about twice the height of the vase.’
