Summer days are carefree, light and airy - and there may be no more perfect floral representation of the joy of summertime than the hydrangea. With dreamy color palettes and delicate petals, this flower is the perfect backdrop for the season, as well as for many summer floral arrangements. However, here at Bice's Florist we believe that these beauties deserve some recognition of their own, and to that end would like to introduce you to the summer hydrangea, a gorgeous flower in its own right.
Loved Throughout the World: The hydrangea is found growing everywhere from America to Asia, and comes in 75 varieties. It blooms primarily from late spring to early fall, making it a true summer flower. Read More about Designing with Summer Hydrangea »
