If you are lucky, you live in a place where hydrangeas grow in abundance. New England is one of those places. Summer in New England is a feast for the eyes with all of the hydrangea bushes in full bloom. Tips for Making Beautiful Hydrangea Arrangements for Your Home Hydrangea Arrangement Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers, so as soon as the blossoms start to open you'll find me cutting them to bring into the house. I have eight hydrangea bushes so there are plenty of blossoms to choose from. All but one of my hydrangea bushes are a gorgeous blue color. The other one is a deep, lovely purple that I love as well. Purple Hydrangeas Hydrangeas can be a challenge to arrange because they are so top heavy. I like to use wide, short vases for my arrangements and I find that the hydrangea blossoms will often topple out of the vase. The same is true for lilacs and peonies that also grow in my yard. Keeping them corralled in the vase can be a challenge.
