Did You Know?
In general the hydrangea stands for friendship, devotion, and understanding. The hydrangea has medicinal purposes; Native Americans used the root as a diuretic and detoxifier. The bark of the hydrangea was used to ease muscle sprains and burns. It is still used today in alternative medicine as a tonic herb. The hydrangea plant blooms in the summer and the fall. Hydrangeas should be planted in areas that receive morning sun and afternoon shade. These blooms are available in white, pink, blue, and purple.
