In Bloom: Angel's Parasol Hydrangea

Tuesday, June 2, 2015

Although I treasure each and every variety in our hydrangea garden, I find the Angel's Parasol is one of the most dazzling.  It produces a unique and very delicate flower with soft tear-shaped petals.  The pale periwinkle blue or lavender color is stunning and the blossoms are textured, appearing to have an almost powdery finish.

Our plant was purchased a few years ago as a decorative piece for an indoor party.  After the event, I  planted it in the ground where it spread and more than doubled in size.  Now every summer there are many blooms to bring indoors.  Above is an arrangement I created featuring this hydrangea along with other summer garden flowers.

The Gilded Bloom now has a companion website called The Gilded Bloom Studio and is now on FacebookTwitterPinterest and Instagram.  For more floral inspired ideas and updates,  please connect with me on these networks.  You can also follow The Gilded Bloom on Bloglovin' or via email using the subscription box near the top of this page. Hope to see you there!
