Purple is a range of color hues occurring between red and blue. Purple hydrangeas reach their best size during the summer months, sometimes obtaining a jumbo (9 inch diameter) size. During the rest of the year, purple hydrangeas average 6 inches in diameter with large petals. To protect the blooms for travel, the cutting stage for purple hydrangeas is 70 percent. This means that when you see the flowers in the box, they will still have some younger cream petals. Please allow them to develop to full color upon arrival. Available in regular, premium, and jumbo sizes. The premium size hydrangea is packed 30 stems per quarter box.
