Hydrangea flowers are native of Asia and America which have around 70 species.
These species varieties are mostly seen in eastern Asia notably Japan, China and Korea.
Hydrangea flowers usually blossom from early spring to late autumn.
Most of the flowers are colored as white and few species colored as blue, red, pink, light purple or dark purple.
The name Hydrangea is derived from the Greek words of “Hydor” which means water and “angos” which means jar or vessel. That indicates the great necessity of abundant water for the growth of the flower.
Symbolism of the flower is related to vanity and boastfulness; where as others argue that it reflects the greatness or gratitude of presenter against understanding of the receiver.
Few suggest that it denotes sincerity of the feelings that felt by heart.
