Hydrangea heaven ~
Both my 'Pia' and 'Endless Summer' Hydrangea plants are in full bloom and covered with these beautiful pink Mopheads (Hydrangea Macrophylla). I like to leave the blooms on the shrubs until they age and take on a vintage look so I end up with a wonderful dried arrangement that will last for a very long time. To retain it's intense natural color, you can use Silica Gel . . . I have not done that as of yet . . . I like to dry them naturally and have been very happy with the results.
