Ostentatious florals that come in an abundance of colours. Hydrangea are sometimes known as snowballs but chilly these flowers are not. They bloom from late spring to early autumn and petals range from white, pink, purple and blue. Some even change colour, depending on the quality of the water and soil.
These generous stems need a good, sturdy vase and lots of fresh water to drink. Soft water is best, though any water will do.
