Today I went out to do a “little” pruning in the hydrangea shrub section. With a mission in mind!
Each year, I take a few cuttings of flowers from the hydrangeas for drying and then I keep them in vases for displays inside the house. The ones that I currently have at home have been dried for two years now. They are getting a little brittle so I decided it was time for another round of “fresh” hydrangeas for the living room!
My bouquet here features five different varieties – Limelight, Little Lime™ and Invincebelle Spirit® – each of which is a Proven Winner variety and then Endless Summer and Twist ‘n Shout, both of which are part of the Endless Summer series of Hydrangeas. I will take these home, place in a cool location that is dark, hang them upside down for 2 to 3 weeks and that is it! The color will fade some but will still be quite colorful!
