Elegant Summer Hydrangea

By The Flower Bucket on July 9, 2017 in Flowers, hydrangea. 0 Comments

This month, we would like to introduce you to one of our favorite summer flowers, the hydrangea. You may have heard of this bloom before, but you may not be able to pick it out as you would a rose, or a sunflower. The reason lies in the fact that although this gorgeous flower offers a lovely color palette, as well as large and generous flowers, the hydrangea is most often designed as a backdrop for other, more well-known blooms. But here at The Flower Bucket, we know that this special flower deserves a little more recognition, and so we decided to bring it center-stage for the summer season. A Little Background: The hydrangea was originally discovered in Japan, but it grows well all over the world. There are 75 different varieties of the flower, most exhibiting shades of pink and blue. Pale green petals are often the result of fading pigmentation, although some white and green hybrids have been cultivated.  Read More about Elegant Summer Hydrangea

Growing a Purposeful Garden

The natural world is nothing if not spectacular. Not only are the singular components of nature amazing and fascinating, but the synergy showcased by our ecosystem is something quite incredible. During the summer months, the interconnected lives of flowers, bees, butterflies - and us - are easy to see. After all, flowers require that butterflies and bees pollinate. And human beings rely on that pollination in many ways for our food supply. The decline of the bee population worldwide is something that will affect us all  - therefore, cultivating a garden that is not only beautiful but that support bees and butterflies in their pollination duties is something to strive for. The floral experts at The Flower Bucket would like to take this opportunity to share some methods that you can use to grow a purposeful garden that is as good for the ecosystem as it is for the beauty of your yard.
