Derived from the Greek language, hydrangea means “water vessel” because of the shape of its seed capsules. They are native to America, China, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Indonesia, and the Himalayas and bloom from early spring to late autumn.
Hydrangea flower heads (also called corymbs or panicles) come in two types: large bold flowers and small interior blooms. The larger, more colorful blooms are typical for bouquets and floral arrangements because they have been specifically bred for their size. The smaller blooms are more common in wild growth populations.
The Easter holiday brings feelings of hope and renewal, and flowers are a wonderful way to celebrate both the newness of spring and the beauty of Easter which is our Lord, Jesus Christ.
In many offices across the Oklahoma City metro, administrative professionals are holding everything together. They’re keeping things organized, making sure people get where they need to be, and greeting employees and customers with a welcoming smile. And while many business owners and executives say thank you often, we’re rapidly approaching the special day set aside to celebrate administrative professionals.
Prom season means it’s time for wristlet corsages and boutonnieres for high school sweethearts or groups of friends on a special night.
We recently created 32 centerpieces, 330 little girl corsages, and 250 boutonnieres for the dads for the City of Oklahoma City Parks and Recreation Department’s annual Daddy Daughter Dance. Lilygrass was honored to be the florist selected to provide the flowers for this fantastic event this year!
This is the fifth year that OKC Parks and Recreation has hosted this event, but it’s the first year they added the surprise of including corsages and boutonnieres as part of the ticket price. You can probably imagine the looks of joy on the little girls’ faces when they received their wristlet corsage!
