Flower Gift Korea Presents Hydrangeas in Korea

Hydrangeas in Korea

Hydrangeas are a beautiful flower and a favorite of many. My wife loves hydrangeas and so does my flower instructor. So, it’s no secret that women in Korea love the sight of pink and blue hydrangeas. Obviously roses are still the most popular flower in Korea, but hydrangeas are not to be forgotten.

Not too long ago, the Garden of Morning Calm in South Korea was holding a hydrangea exhibit. There were beautiful hydrangeas of different kinds for you to see. However, the flower market doesn’t sell all of the hydrangeas you can find at the garden. Blue and Pink hydrangeas are the most in demand in Korea, so they are usually available at most flower markets in South Korea. You can often see white and green hydrangeas as well, but they aren’t as popular as the blue and pink ones. Purple and other exotic colors are harder to find, thus they cost a lot more money to purchase.

Here is what they look like at the Seoul Flower Market in Yangjae dong:

Fun Fact: About 95% of all of the flowers purchases (at Flower Gift Korea) with hydrangeas in the flower design were purchased by women as gifts for other women. So if you are a man and you are reading this, take this info consideration when deciding what kind of flowers you may want to send to your girlfriend or wife in Korea. However, you can never go wrong with roses.

Here is a picture of one of Flower Gift Korea’s popular hydrangea flower basket along side a wrapped chocolate box:

The word hydrangea actually comes from two words in greek; the first half of the word means water and the second half of the word means jar. So, if you put the words together, you get “water jar”. However, the hydrangea flower doesn’t actually hold a lot of water, instead, it intakes a lot of water.

So make sure to give your hydrangea a lot of water. If you forget to give your hydrangea water and your hydrangea looks like it has died, don’t just automatically assume that it’s dead and throw your hydrangea away. Quickly cut about 1-2cm off the stem on a diagonal, so that the flower can absorb water more thoroughly, stick it in a jar/container with water (preferably with some flower food), and place the hydrangea flower in a cool room.

We at Flower Gift Korea did an experiment to see how possible it was to save a hydrangea flower. So we had some hydrangeas left over, which we bought at the Flower Market located in Yangjae-dong, Seoul, South Korea. And we let the poor flower get a little dry.
