The summer months can be challenging for someone who loves peonies, ranunculus and blossoming branches. I receive so many requests from brides looking for summer or autumn replacements for these lush spring blooms. One of my favorite suggestions is the classic hydrangea. When you're looking for abundance in your floral arrangements, try these wonderful, seasonal superstars. There are endless varieties and the color range is magnificent. I'm currently making plans for an upcoming event that requires hundreds of hydrangea, all in a range of crisp summer blue tones.
Check out the many examples of bouquets and floral arrangements featuring gorgeous hydrangeas from Martha Stewart Weddings.
I love working with Jim Hipple from Rancho Sarel. His farm, located on the Central Coast of California, produces the most amazing hydrangeas and hellebores. Learn more about his hydrangeas at weddinghydrangea.com. These flowers are on their way up to my studio right now.
Are you working with hydrangeas or looking for a good summer or fall replacement for large spring blooms such as peonies?
