Other Notes About Hydrangea Care:
Sensitive to heat
Performs best in water (rather than floral foam)
Spraying completed design with Crown & Glory may be helpful. Once the Crown & Glory is dry, design can go into cooler for storage.
Hydrangeas can also be purchased dried/preserved – no water needed!
