Purple hydrangeas are graded 5 stems per bunch. The flowers are large. The actual purple color may slightly vary from the picture due to time of the season. Hydrangeas love water and high humidity and sometimes the can look wilted and that is because they are not taking up water. You can take the entire stem and put them upside down in a bucket of clean water overnight. The flower will come back. We do not recommend using hydrangeas in floral foam arrangements, they do much better when they have a direct source of water.
Care and handling tips: Always use a clean vase or bucket when they arrive cut the stems at the base at least one inch on an angle. Use the flower food in clean water. Refresh the water every other day and wash the vase. Keep hydrangeas in a cool, well-ventilated place away from direct sunlight. Keep them away from any sources of ethylene gas (fruits and vegetables), as this makes fresh flowers mature faster. They can last 10 days or more!
