The Hydrangea represents gratitude, grace and beauty. It also radiates abundance because of the lavish number of flowers and the generous round shape. Its colours symbolise love, harmony and peace.
Hydrangea: The word origin of Hydrangea comes from the Greek words for water, hydros and jar, angos because some species are quite water thirsty.
Bigleaf Hydrangea: When it is not completely blooming, its huge leaves attract massive attention as they grow up to 15cm in length, which seems to protect its delicate buds. When the Hydrangea is fully blossomed, its huge green leaves perfectly capture the beauty of the flower. Its species epithet, macrophylla, also refers to its big or long leaves, which is also why it's called Bigleaf Hydrangea.
Flowering Plants can contribute to positive Feng Shui in many ways. They can balance the water element, bring fortune or luck, purify the air, counteract negative energy, and help bring the outdoors in.
The color variation of the Bigleaf Hydrangea varies with the pH level of the soil. Acidic yields a blue flower, whereas alkaline soil grows a red. Even if you are growing your plants in the same garden, soil pH variations in different areas could give you differently-colored flowers.
☘ The Magical Hydrangea improves humidity indoors, as the water taken up through the roots is evaporated into the air by the leaves. The Hydrangea does this enthusiastically, making it one of the few houseplants that makes a real contribution to humidity in the home - and hence to your health and energy!
