Hydrangeas are very popular both as cut flowers and plants for the garden because of their big, beautiful blooms. The name comes from the constant moisture required to keep the flowers happy, healthy and blooming. In Japan, they are said to be a sign of apology or gratitude because an emperor gave them as apologies to his maidens. The colour purple is a symbol of the desire for deeper understanding and it can also be a symbol of wealth and abundance. This flower colour is suitable to be gifted to almost anyone, or it can be a great decoration piece in your home.
