Hydrangeas are derived from the Greek meaning of ‘water vessel’ which refers to its powerful stem and the shape of its seed capsules. Many people who do not look after Hydrangeas will complain that they do not last as long as other flowers, however, this is because the hydrangea stem often gets covered in sap and leaves the flower unable to take up water. To avoid this the end of their stem should be cut off every two to three days.
