When we think of the hydrangea, we instantly conjure an image of a huge dome of pastel-shaded flowers; in fact there are five main types of hydrangea, but it’s the classic hydrangea that really stands out for weddings.

What is a classic hydrangea?

Unique to the hydrangea is the colour change – a phenomenon that occurs during bloom and sees the hydrangea produce gorgeous colour combinations on each flower including green and red, purple and green, and flowers with different coloured margins. When the hydrangea has gone through this colour change, they are know as ‘classic’ hydrangeas.

Classic hydrangeas are strong and durable and make excellent wedding wreaths, centerpieces and bouquets. What’s more, if you have a bouquet made from classic hydrangeas, you can dry it and keep your bouquet long after your wedding day.


Hydrangeas work well on their own, but you can augment arrangements with other flowers, grasses and green leaves. In fact, it is such a flexible floral friend you can combine it with other cut flowers in endless varieties to make some truly magnificent arrangements. How will you style yours?
