Hydrangeas

After the flowers are spent I begin collecting the gigantic blooms for indoor floral arrangements. Each year the gardener can create a new and dazzling array of dried flowers. Let us begin with the white Hydrangea 'Annabelle'. In order to create a successful indoor arrangement make certain the shrub has no white blooms remaining. They must be void of white otherwise they cannot be used for indoor accents.

Hydrangeas

The blooms may be spray painted in order to achieve the desired color for your indoor decor. Some blooms may be left natural, others sprayed white to resemble the shrub while pink, blue and red may compliment your indoor theme. One year I spray painted the Hydrangeas red and gold which provided a lovely display at Christmas. Another year I chose pink and blue for my Easter theme and this year I am thinking about black and orange for Halloween. The uses for Hydrangea blooms varies and is only limited by your imagination.
