Which hygrangeas for cut flowers

all_bout_flowersAugust 8, 2008

Hello Hygrangea Experts:

I am a cut flower grower that would like to add a lot of hygrangeas to my garden specifically for cut flowers. I have recently added Annabelle, Frillebet, and the man I bought the last one from said "Carlina?" He had a heavy spanish accent so I'm not sure on that one, it has a light pink bloom, small flowers; but that can be deceiving if the bloom has been changing color. I was wondering about PeeGee? I would like Limelight, but it is very hard to find where I live. I need some blue if anyone has some ideas. I live on the NW tip of Oregon, climate rains 8 months of the year, mild temp, not much sun.

Thank you,

Kathy

any of the mopheads are fine for that. i find that the lacecaps shed a lot in the vase and don't seem to dry as well.
colors will depend on the soil chemistry of your garden. can't have blue hydrangeas without acidic soil.
