Hydrangea’s are getting a more and more popular choice flower for Summer/Autumn Weddings
The best season for Hydrangea’s is June, July, August,September and October, when they are in their natural flowering season and widely available and looking at their best. Also as with most cutflowers they are best value in July / October.
At Lamber de Bie Flowers we like to work as mutch as possible with flowers that are in their natural flowering season. This is not only for the reasons as I mentioned above but also it is one of the beautiful things about being a florist that our work continuously follows the seasons.
There is a large variety of Hydrangea’s in lots of different colours available for your wedding to choose from. Colours vary from white, creme, pink, purple, blue, red, green and mutch more.
There are always new varieties coming on to the market from growers developing new cultivars with better qualities as cutflowers and a wider range of colours. It is always good to check with your florist if the variety of Hydrangea Flowers are available on your wedding date before you totally set your heart of these stunning flowers and later find out that they would not be available for your wedding.
Hydrangea’s are available outside of their natural flowering season but expect to pay more for then.
I have added a small selection of some beautiful varieties of Hydrangea flowers for you to have a look at. If you’re thinking of a different colour ask your florist or send us a quick note and we’ll be delighted to advise.
Hope you have lots of fun planning the flowers and every other element of your wedding day.
Remenber that this is just a small section of the many colours of Hydrangea flowers that we as professional florists have acces to. And also that some Hydrangea’s are available in the early part of summer as others are better in the later half of summer.
I would like to acknowledge the efforts of the many growers of stunning cutflowers that widen our pallet of colours we can work with all the time by creating beautiful varieties of Hydrangea’s and many other flowers.
Blue, Gray and Green are some of my favorite colours in the garden.
I love my table on the terrace with a large sheet of Kilkenny limestone filled with beautiful fossils.
I recently painted my design studio in this fresh blue with pure white detail around the windows. It brightens the garden even on the dullest of days.
The Hosta is a plant I love in my garden and I have lots of different varieties. It is an annual struggle to keep them protected from slugs. I don’t like using slug pellets so often place a half apple upside down under the Hosta plants and collect the slugs twice daily – a treat my chickens are very grateful fore.
This tree is now approx 25 ft tall and provides shade for the chickens in the summer. It reminds me of the mature -much larger – Atlas Ceder we had in our garden growing up in Holland.
The needles of this very slow growing pine have a fantastic silver on the back and olive green on the front.
This is a detail of the dried bark of a Eucalypthus tree that died as a result of the very cold winter we had.
The mint has a wonderful soft scent and flowers during August and September.
The leaves of the weeping willow tree are some of the most elegant foliage in the garden. They move – dance like – with the slightest movement in the air catching the light on the silver back of the leaves.
