Hydrangea is a very popular cut flower because of its lush and colourful blooms. Hydrangea originated from Southern and Eastern Asia, in countries such as Japan, China, the Himalaya and Indonesia, as well as North and South America. They usually bloom in abundance between March to September. However, like any other fresh cut flowers, hydrangea wilt very quickly and more so compared to other types of fresh cut flowers. If not treated correctly, cut hydrangeas may start wilting as soon as within a day or even hours. But fret not, as there are ways you can keep fresh cut hydrangeas for a longer time.

From a time immemorial to our contemporary souls today, flowers have been alluded meanings by ancient traditions and folk cultures. Perhaps back then when people were not quite as preoccupied with work, school and modern-day shenanigans, they could afford the luxury of time to compose mythical narratives and concoct imaginative parables, creating the notion of flower symbolism that we know of today. While some lexical semantics have faded in tandem with history, others have withstood the test of time and continue to be memorialised and perpetuated amongst flower-lovers or anthophiles (a term to describe people who adore flowers, apparently) today.
As far as romanticism is concerned, a significant lot of flowers have been accorded with metaphors for love, affection and adoration. Love can be interpreted in a multitude of ways — love for a partner, love for friends and love for family — which resultantly, opens up a plethora of different flowers symbolising the varying spectrums of love.
