It’s the beginning of June and the hydrangea buds are beginning to form on my mophead varieties. The paniculatas are full of leaves, but no buds yet. Last year this plant had very pretty, light blue flowers which I used to create some nice wedding stationery in the design set I named “Blue Heaven“. You can see the RSVP postcard below. I hope the flowers will be just as pretty this year, but the truth is, you never know for sure what color blooms the macrophyllas will have.
Last year the Blushing Bride began with white flowers that ended up turning green. I am wondering what color they will be this summer.
Brides tend to prefer either the blue flowers or the light green of the panicled (or elongated) flowers like the ones that grow on the Limelight bush.

Our area (Douglas County, GA) is trying to become known for its annual hydrangea festival. Not sure how well that’s going, but it’s lovely to see all the yards and mailboxes decorated with hydrangea arrangements for the festival (1st weekend in June). May be a market for your designs next year?
I would love to see a hydrangea festival! I could get some wonderful photos I’ll bet. In the northeast my hydrangeas won’t bloom for at least another month. Thanks for that info, it could be a great market for stationery to advertise such an event. If you care to share any pictures, send them to me for the blog and I’ll link back to you, or the area, etc.
Thank you for the visit to my blog.
Can’t wait to see your hydrangeas when they gloom.
