Melissa's Tips and Tricks - Although we love fresh flowers, building a faux floral “wardrobe” to pull from when you don’t have time or patience for fresh flowers can be a lifesaver.
We recommend starting with a dozen stems of your favorite floral pairings and a versatile vaseyou know is the right size, then build a collection of seasonal and occasional options. Choose your floral selection like the professionals do, a mix of fillers, thrillers and a few spillers.
It is a wonderful investment when your arrangement doesn’t turn out the way you expected and/or who hasn’t woken up to unexpectedly wilted flowers. We think they are also perfect for weekend homes or when you leave for a trip, always lovely to greet you and never deal with a dead arrangement and smelly water again.

DIMENSIONS: Flower head 8" wide, Stem 39" long
CARE & MAINTENANCE: We recommend avoiding direct sunlight as this can diminish the stems vibrance overtime.
Lightly dust regularly to keep looking fresh, refresh as needed by misting with water or flower spray cleaner.
For deep cleaning once a year or so we run a warm bath, then gently rinse or dip each stem in clear warm water. Lay on a bath towel to dry and your blooms will look like new.
FACTS & HISTORY: The snowball hydrangea is known for its spherical flower heads. These beautiful native shrubs often become so covered with blooms that it can look like a fresh blanket of snow has fallen on them, hence their name.
Hydrangeas dates back to over 23 million years ago! A fossil species called Hydrangea alaskana was found on Jaw Mountain in Alaska, USA, from a section of rock dating back to the paleogene period (which dates from 66 million to 23 million years ago).
Fossils have also been discovered more recently in Asia, the continent with which Hydrangeas are more strongly associated and where it is recorded that people first started cultivating the species, thousands of years ago.
Asian varieties first made their way to Europe in 1775, when Swedish naturalist Carl Peter Thunberg brought five plants back to the continent when returning from a trip to Asia. Since then, the plant has been ever popular in gardens across the Northern Hemisphere, where it is best suited to the cooler, wetter climate.
