In other cultures, the blue hydrangeas are used to express feelings of sympathy. They are a perfect flower gift for a grieving family that has just lost a loved one.

Blue Hydrangeas are pretty flowers both when growing in gardens and pots as well as when included in floral arrangements. However, before you gift them to someone it’s good to understand the meaning behind them.

The meaning is especially more pronounced if the bouquet doesn’t have any other flower types. You don’t want to send the wrong message to your significant other, family, or friends.
