Hydrangeas are the most beautiful flowers to me. When I see hydrangeas, the first thing I think of are old Southern plantation homes. They are known for being all around the old southern homes. But where did they come from? Let me give you a quick history of the hydrangea. They are native to Japan, but in 1730 they were brought to England and ever since then they’ve been grown in gardens all over Europe and eventually parts of North America. They come in beautiful colors like creams, reds, pinks, whites and blues.
With so many color choices, it’ll be easier to decorate your home with them! They give off a relaxed, dreamy feel with an old, vintage vibe. Many people place them in vintage boxes or baskets. Some people (like me) find old tin watering cans and place them in those. Although it is something so simple and small, it can make a world of difference in a drab room. You can even hang them for a graceful, but elegant look! If you’re not a good gardener and don’t think you could grow your own, then head on over to an arts and crafts store and look for them in the fake flower section. They’re such a popular flower that you can find them just about anywhere.
